MAJOR LOSS OF POWER / BOGGING DOWN

1999 Dodge Ram

Engine Performance problem
1999 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

I have a 99 dodge ram 1/2 ton with the 5.9 V-8. After turning the truck on and pressing on the accelerator, whether in gear or neutral, the engine bogs down and I can't get it over about 2000 rpm no matter how far I press on the accelerator. It seems as if it's starving for something and cannot produce any power.

Did you ever figure out what was causing the problem of lack of power?
