2004 Ford Freestar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 66400 miles

Fuel system cleaning was done at 65,000 miles since that time the vehicle " hiccups" when going 45-65 mph. Had fuel filter replaced, trans filter kit installed, cabin air filter replaced. All computer tests were completed and found okay. It appears that the " hiccups" take place when there is a light to heavy snowfall or rain. Both the mechanic and this owner are frustrated. I have taken several trips of several hundred miles and the van drove beautifully in temps between -10 and 40 degrees?

Define " hiccups" is it like an engine miss? Or is it downshifting? Has the van ever been tuned up? Moisture could be acausing a misfire due to bad plug wire.
