Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab 5.7 Automatic.: OK. 2006 5.7 hemi auto

Customer Question

OK. 2006 5.7 hemi auto mega cab. Runs great, but it just started farting and popping (sometimes stalling) when I try to go from easy cruising at any speed (RPM about 1300 and pedal angle around 20%) to a "kick down/gentle downshift and accelerate" mode. The only codes I get are from Evap Emission. The trans filters are Mopar, the sensors are a year old and all else is up to spec. 92k miles, no leaks and I'm too old to hot-rod anymore. Wadda'ya'think?

Hello and sorry for the delay! It sounds like the engine is running lean when this happens. Low fuel pressure, injectors not opening up enough or possibly plugged exhaust. Let me send you a list of possible causes based on my experience.
