I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.7liter hemi. I have noticed my problem for the last 3 weeks. When I depress the gas pedal to drop into passing gear, or when climbing up a hill, the truck drops into passing gear as intended, and the RPM's rise to between 5000 and 6000, but I continue at my rate of speed or slow down on the uphill. I get little or no acceleration. This never used to be an issue. I don't race my truck so i'm not exceeding any speed limits. Just trying to keep up with the flow of traffic. Recently I had my fuel pump go out on me and thought that was the problem, but have had that replaced and still have the issue. I have changed out my spark plugs as needed. I change my oil every 5000 miles, which comes up between a month and a half and two months. I try to put fuel system cleaner thru every oil change. I don't have any slipping or skipping or anything else out of the ordinary. I used to have a trouble code of P0406, but that has been resolved. I don't think my cat is plugged as I have lot's of air pressure exiting the exhaust still. Only issue is the high rpm with little or no acceleration when needed. The truck feels sluggish with out the get up and go it used to have. What is there I can check or change to maybe get this acceleration power back? Any information or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
