SOMEONE HELP!!!!!!! lol seriously

so my 1989 ford ranger 2.9 v6, it will not keep its power to it, it would lose power at about 4000rpms and bog down a lot when im on flat ground but when going up hills its loses power at 2000rpms since giving it more gas for the hill i guess so.......i basically gave it a tune up replacing the spark plus , wires, distributor cap, and oil change, distributor module and it still does the same thing. what could be causing this?!

Could also be a weak fuel pump. Fuel filter is the least invasive, try that first.

Yes, replace it and tell us how much crap is in it. It could surprise you if it has been a while.

yea, i guess i could try it to see what happens, but if that doesnt do the fix, what other suggestions could be caused its only got 131,000 miles has 33inch tires but i wouldnt think the engine would be wore out already since i havent actually wheeled it too much. i mean ive been a lot but not enough to kill it already.
