LOSS OF POWER

2008 Ford Focus • 124,000 miles

Randomly when driving the car will loose power for about five seconds then cut back in, it doesn't cut out just nothing there. It will do this in maybe 10 minute spells then can be fine for a day or two then will happen again. I have changed a couple of split hoses thinking this has sorted the problem but then this happened again. Engine management light is on. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks in advance.

How long since a tune-up? Can you tell if problem is engine or tranny related? Have the trouble codes, checked. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.
