I have notice I have lose of power through some gears. I need to floor it and jump back a gear if I want to gain speed. This only happens when its hot. In the morning while cold it runs great. I have also notice a sulfur smell from the exhaust. Please help.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure with a gauge.

Truck has no codes. Does the exhaust smell mean its running rich? I was told the smell is the cats burning up and if I don't fix the problem it could lead to replacing them. I don't want to do that.

If your cat was going bad it would set a code. Check yoru fuel pressure or have someone do that for you. You need a gauge and maybe adapters autoparts rent them
