Try removing the air filter and driving it around the block. Could be blocked. Clean the throttle body and MAF.

The Fuel filter is a PITA to change - 3 ports and a disconnect tool under a shield or 2. Don't leave the shields off.

I have a 97 ford explorer when you press the gas it will jerk and when I go up a hill it act like it want to stop cut off and it will start jerking but soon as you get on a flat smooth road it run good
