[DML] Engine question- Answered (sort of)

I apologize for the lack of information. I was exhausted and cheezed 
off when I posted my question.

It was certainly strange. The engine idled fine, the only difference 
in behavior was a heavy stumble upon moderate acceleration and a 
noticable loss of power. Once you were at speed, it seemed fine.

There were no gauge indications out of spec either, (temp, oil 
pressure, RPM).

Next day, I performed a compression check and all was well. My spark-
plugs were text-book examples of properly wearing plugs. (No 
fouling, detonation, proper temperature range). I did find a valve 
cover bolt that had backed out, but when I performed a vacuum leak 
check it didn't seem to be a factor. Nonetheless, I screwed it back 
down and took the car out. All signs of hesitation were gone, and 
all power was present. I've driven it several times since to make 
sure, and put my foot in the floor in an attempt to make the 
symptoms reappear but all is well.

Personally, I think the car heard me swearing under my breath that 
if a head gasket had blown again that I would trade it in for an '05 
Mustang and decided to correct itself.
