Idle engine seems to run fine, even driving seems okay at time engine stutters or drops out when trying to pass no power engine stumbles. Catalytic temperatures right is 341° front and 486° rr. Left is 397° front 515 rr. I cannot find anyone that has a vacuum gauge to test the engine is breathing.

Check fuel pressure with a gauge auto parts rent it pressure should be 60-66 psi with key on. See link.

Hey DANIEL,

There can be many things that can cause this like a plugged fuel filter, but I am thinking it could be the mass air flow sensor that needs to be cleaned, also check the air filter and here are a few guide that can help you.

Hey Ken sorry it has taken so long for me to get back with but time and money has slowed me down. So I cleanded the mass air flow sensor and replaced air cleaner I also replaced the fue filter that had rusty lines and took a lottle more work. Truck runs much better but still have a shutter in the engine at high R's I know it's in the engine because I can rev up the engine and feel it so I dont believe it's trans. I looked at harmonic balancer and it looks fine everything is flush on the front of it. I dont know if it could be engine mounts. But it runs alot better so far. Also going to give it a full tune up plugs wire cap and rotor ect. Just a heads up there is not service engine warning light or codes except for 02 sensor bank 2 senser 2

The full tune up should help it could be the spark plugs are misfiring at higher RPM's

Please let us know what happens.
