Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 30 days ago.

You need to test your fuel pressure with a gauge, it sounds like it is starving for fuel. Also check your fuel filter.

If both of these are good, then check for a restricted exhaust such as a plugged CAT.

Thanks, Ron
