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.
