I have a 1990 dodge ram 50 4x4 2.4L truck and it moves slow from a dead stop and it will not go faster than 65-70 mph. Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

hummm..a timing isue????? or not....first change the fuel filter........


Thanks, but I've done that. I had the transmission and engine rebuilt. I put a new torque converter on it the other day. I put a new exhaust on it three years ago. New MAF a couple months ago. I checked the fuel injectors and they are good.


Hello... your secondary CAT on the exhaust manifold could be clogged... its a major flow restriction and power robber if it is.. :)


Thanks, but I have disconnected my exhaust system and driven my truck and it did not make a difference.
