The day before the car ran fine.  Here's the scoop...started fine, idled fine, drove to town 35 mph, got on service road and started to get up to speed (50 mph).  Car started to run rough and felt like no power.  Dashboard was actually shaking because of how rough it was running.  It never did stall.  Fuel Filter already changed and that didn't help any.  Does any one have any ideas?  Thank you.

Are you due for a tune up? Could also be a failing ignition coil or control module. Ignition systems will usually break down under load if there's something not up to snuff. HTH. -Jim
