HESITATES

1992 Dodge Caravan

Engine Performance problem
1992 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 151000 miles

My van has a hesitation with loss of power and popping noise in engine compartment at cruising speed of 60mph and also did it at 25mph. I have to flutter the gas pedal several times to get it back to speed. No engine light comes on. New fuel filter was replaced. Can you help?
