If this vehicle is a EfI electronic fuel inject the fuel filter may be clogged ..its on frame under driver door ( I believe that's its location) when filter is removed blow through the inlet side flow should be easy.. when draining fuel from filter, see how dirty or clean . more then likely it is your fuel pump in fuel tank.. I myself rather remove bed then fighting fuel lines,straps,draining tank etc.


My in-line 6 is carburated so there is no efi I think it's more than a clogged air filter
