Hesitation when cruzin?

My 2.5 4cyl seems to hesitate or lose power when I attempt to keep a certain speed. Usually in 3rd or 4th @ 2k rpms. It doesn't seem to do it when I am going over 60 mph. It kicks back in after a couple seconds or so. Any suggestions? I replaced the plugs and didn't make any difference.

Are you running the A/C? Any time the compresor kicks in it will bog down the engine. Just a thought. Griz

Don't have a/c. It's like it loses power totally and then kicks back in suddenly. I have used injector cleaner to no avail.
