Not getting power.. HELP

Ok I don't know what it is so let me give you the story.. If I sitting at a red light and everything going great till this point and I gun it sometimes the car acts like it not getting everything it needs.. It acts like wants to die but it not.. Doesn't want to accelerate in the least but does very slowly.. Rpms stagger but stay the same.. And kinda gets worse if change gears.. But if I turn the car off for a second and turn it back on I have no problems.. Then ( and I don't know if this is related or not) if I sitting at idle for a bit my car drops to like 400 rpms and almost dies then goes back to 1000 then settles at about 800 or so.. And will do this over and over.. And very rarely it will die out.. Please y'all I love my stang and want to do all I can

Is it misfiring or is there any suction sounds coming from the engine? Check your vacuum hoses see if ones kinked there might even be one with a hole in it. It sounds like a related issue to the other thread.

It is an 02 GT.. And what vacuum hoses in particular would I be looking for? What other thread are you talking about?

And I don't think it misfiring because if was wouldn't it do this all the time and not just when the engine is being pushed?

Clean your MAF sensor and clean your IAC valve ive had the same problem before. Just clean those 2 things and see if it still doing it. And make sure all your vacuum hoses are connected. It can be any of them.
