2500 ram: 1996 dodge 2500 v10 engine.this problem only happens

Customer Question

1996 dodge 2500 v10 engine.this problem only happens when high outside temperature aprox. Over 90 deg. Then part time only. When down shifting to higher rpm it starts to lose power and surge like fuel or air problem, or electronic problem,if you back out of it and shifts to higher gear , it then smoths out and starts to pull better again, but with large load you have to get more power this it happens again when it needs to downshift again.any thoughts?

Hello and welcome to just answer. Sounds a lot like a fuel delivery problem(fuel pump, filter, etc.) Under heavy loads, more fuel is required. If the fuel supply is in adequate, then what you are experiencing will happen. Have the fuel volume and pressure tested and if it is below spec, then have the filter and/or fuel pump replaced. I hope this helps, Chris

Fuel pressure is good at shop when it's not having problem there any fuel or temp.electronic devices that could be failing that could cause this.

Well actually the fuel pressure should be monitored when it is acting up. That would be the true test.
