Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Extended Cab 4x4

Engine stalls when idol. Seems like it floats or lacks power on acceleration. Sometimes it clears up, and sometimes it doesn't.

I've change spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, roter, checked fuel pump pressure-55, ohmed injectors - 12.4, checked timing mark on crank, and roter button comparison- ok,

I need help, please when going up hill my truck seems too lack power or proper gas flow.... it also does this when you step into the accelerator to pass some one.... i have been told it could be the fuel filter or fuel pump.....if so where is the fuel filter located at?????? if not, can someone please help!!!!

    I had a similar problem I took the truck to the dealer I bought it from they couldn't find the problem so they sent the truck to a dodge dealer it turns out the problem was the 02 sensors

    I checked for ohm resistance on everything I could, and all checked out in good working order.I even went so far as to pull the fuel line off the pump and have someone crank the engine to see if the flow was adequate...i got shot with about 2-3cups of gas in 5 seconds, so I'm pretty sure the fuel flow is just peachy...the spark plugs spark, I have narrowed the culprit to the timing which is off, or a clogged fuel supply hose?

YOU'RE GONNA HATE THIS BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A FUEL ISSUE. HOWEVER HERE'S THE CATCH.....THE FURL FILTER IS IN THE GAS TANK CONNECTED TO THE FUEL PUMP. YOU HAVE TO DROP THE TANK OR TAKE THE BED OFF TO GET TO IT. AND YOU CAN ONLY GET THE NEW FILTER AT THE DEALER. THE LOCAL PARTS STORE DOESN'T CARRY THESE. BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT NAPA, THEY MIGHT. YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO CHECK FOR A VAC. LEAK AROUND THE THROTTLE BODY. LASTLY WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID ANYTHING TO THE TRANS.? MIGHT WANT TO LOOK INTO THAT.
