truck cutting out at high rpm
So yesterday the truck started cutting out when i was in throttle about 3500 rpm. It actually backfired a little bit, but mainly its bucking/cutting out doesnt quiet feel like its trying to stall out but it feels like it has no power almost.
this to me sounds like a fuel issue, possibly a clogged fuel filter? I've been having transmission issues i.e slipping,not wanting to shift into the next gear. could my trans be the culprit? i plan to check it out once i'm done moving stuff into storage but im just trying to get an idea, or if someone else has an idea as to what it could be.
truck is a 4.0 with a 5r55e trans.
