2003 Taurus Hesitates

My 03 (90K miles) is starting to act up a bit.

When I get onto the freeway for example and give it gas, it acts like it's out of gas or a I fuel filter problem. It hesitates and kicks.

Not sure if it's a bad plug but it's not missing at all.

Any thoughts?

maybe it's the idle assembly, have it cleaned and see if that helps

The check engine light came on on my 03 Taurus. It started skipping at about 3800 rpms. The codes indicated too rich/lean O2 sensor reading. It was recommended that I change the air filter, clean the injectors. Did that. Problem still exhists. Next day car would not start. Finaly started but skip was worse. Recommended that I replace spark plugs, wires and coil pack. Did that. Car hesitated but started. Today, won't start at all. Any ideas, anyone?
