If I feather the gas pedal it does pretty good, but no power up hill, but when I push it to the floor it falls on it's face. I got the truck on trade, the truck sat for 2 years in a field. I put gas in it and started right up in that field!

I'm going to try buying fuel filter & fuel pump, I'm pretty sure it's needing a fuel pump


Possible plugged up cat.
