still have 200tq problems

I'm still having a power loss problem in my '89 200tq when it is under
load.  When I go up hills, it hesitates and has no power.  The other
day, the car wouldn't start because the spark plugs fouled.  I replaced
the spark plugs, wires, and even the distributor because it was making
noises.  THE CAR STILL HESITATES!.  I can't find any vacuum problems.  I
even took a precausion and replaced the intercooler hose with no
imrovement.  I'm about ready to give up.  I've been working on this
problem for a couple of years now, and can't find the problem.  If
anyone has any advice, please respond.  I'm desprate to get this car
running properly.  I did check the turbo.  There are no metal shavings
in the hose.  The shaft does move slightly from wear, but I don't think
it is bad enough to cause a problem.  Any replies would be greatly
appreciated.  Thanks.
