Unhappy 2.3 sputters and jumps on the gas

I have a 1996 2.3 4cyl automatic. It will take off fine, when I get it to about 2500 RPM then the engine will cut off and jump back, and cut off and jump back.. all the way through 4000 RPM then the problem goes away. It runs excellent, until it shifts then the problems comes back. It feels like im stomping on and off the gas. Just a complete loss of all power. In and out very fast. I have taken the tranny, and plug wires out of the possible problem list. Does anyone have the same problem or a solution?? Please help me!!

My 99 ranger 2.5L is doing the same thing. Have you found a solution?

Thanks!

do either of you have a CEL on, have you checked for pending codes?
