has anyone else dealt with this problem? see details below
My ram 1500 2002 slt with 5.9 motor has an irritating problem. After it has set for awhile, like all night while I'm at work, it starts just fine. About 2 miles down the road it will start losing power, spit and sputter and you can here it pop, pop, pop. It never actually stalls the motor out. If I back off the gas and then floor it, it takes right off and seems to clear itself out and runs fine until it sets for several hours again.
Check the fuel filter,and run some gas treatment in it may help.
Check for partially clogged catalytic converter. Do this test at night when vehicle starts to act up look under vehicle at exhaust system and see if converter starts to turn red. If it does converter getting clogged.
