DROP IN POWER

1994 Mazda 323

Engine Performance problem
1994 Mazda 323 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 60000 miles

I have a Mazda 323, 1.3 16v, reg 07/1994, chassis JMZBG13C200835767. When the vehicle is driven hard from 1st to 2nd and then to 3rd gear, just as you engage 3rd gear and press the gas pedal, there is sudden drop in power which lasts less then a second and then picks up again. What causes this? Please help.
