Tim,

1) I would suggest a motor treatment, such as SEAFOAM, to get rid of carbon build up.

2) Check the MAF and see if it is clean. If not, try to clean it with electrical contact cleaner. If that doesn't work, a new one may be in order.

3) Replace PCV valve.

Does the power loss ever occur during acceleration?

Take it to an AutoZone, have them hook up a code reader to the OBD-II port, see what it tells you. They'll do it for free.
