Engine Performance problem
1997 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 141000 miles
My 97 dodge ram has a 5.9L Gas motor with a standard 5 speed tranny. Randomly when im driving and holding a speed of lets say 50 mph my truck like bogs down and feels like its not getting gas untill I romp the pedel down and keep the acceleration up. Once it happens it seems to happen through all gears and when I stop at a light and sit in neutral my rpms drop almost to 0 if I dont feather the gas pedel. My thing is it doesnt always happen and im the type to not want to put my truck in a shop. I was told by a buddy to run sea foam and super gas in my tank and it should fix it. Ive replaced the spark plugs so thats ruled out. Would the sea foam be the fix I need?
