2001 Mustang 3.8 Acceleration Studder

I noticed when its hot that i'll be driving and after my car reaches its optimum temperature if i accelerate hard the car jumps like there is a misfire.
First time it happened, i popped the hood and noticed that the vacuum hose from the intake to the valve head was not connected. I am certain it was on before. I re attached the hose and checked the fluid levels and everything seemed normal after that. Then yesterday it did it again. All my gauges were in normal ranges so i was curious what was up. i stopped to fill it up with gas, saw everything looked normal and drove away fine.
I never had this happen when it was cold out. Only when its 85+ degrees

Has anyone had this problem??

Does it do it under normal driving speeds, cruising speeds. When your driving the speed limit for a few seconds? If so please let me know what the cause is I'm having the same issue and have dropped over 300.00 and still havent figured it out.

Usually it does it under slight acceleration. For example im doing 40 and i shift up to the next gear and i feel it stumble a bit. If you accelerate extremely slow it doesn't do it.

If im just doing 60 on the highway it wont do it without giving it more gas.
