Check for check engine codes? Check basics, air filter, vacuum leaks, fuel pressure and fuel filter. If everything checks out good, may have a plugged catalytic converter

No catalytic converters on the truck check engine light on but I can't pull anything off putting the air filter is good I will check for vacuum leaks fuel pressure in fuel filters get back to you
