I have a 89 ford f150 fuel injected 351

lost power. Will hardly stay running at an
idle. It doesnt rev up as it should. Its a 4
speed manuel and when finally get going
enough to shift its spudders so much i have
to down shift again. It will do about 35mph
tips. I changed the fuel filter and the throttle
positioning sensor but very little increase in
power. I haven't put gas in it for a week but
put a bottle of heet in the tank anywase.

Should check the fuel pressure, may be low indicating a bad fuel pump.

It has dual tanks and has same issue on both tanks. I havent checked the fuel pressure. I will do that when I get off work. Do you know what the pressure should be by chance?
