I was driving down the road then I heard a clunk and my check engine light came on. I lost all power to my 03 Dodge Ram 1500 6 Cylinder truck. Now the truck runs like normal until it gets kinda hot. Then it wont go above 2800 rpm, has no power, makes weird noises, and back fires really bad. Any ideas?
Do you

How long since a tune-up? Check applicable trouble codes. Do a compression test. Use a gage and check fuel pressure, that is part of tune-up.

Any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand autostores used to check codes for free.
