Question about Cars & Trucks
Fuel and air mix is wrong, carb might need cleaning. or you have a blocked fuel filter. you could even have a air leak in one of the intake gaskets. try some fuel cleaner in the tank and run it round for awhile it may clear it but failing that you will need to check the intake and fuel filter. also check spark plug for its gap and colour. wet is flooded too much fuel

Don't know if it applies to your diesel but most later gas engined vehicles have a 'cold start' valve that supplies additional fuel to the fuel/air mix along with boosting the idle speed until some warming of the engine is sensed.

If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...
Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !
If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.
Good luck !

SOURCE: bogs down on acceleration
buy 2 fuel filters. buy can of SEAFOAM at parts store. use 1 f filter to replace old one(you'll probably see old looking gas, with an odor).Pour SEAFOAM into tank. fill up with PREMIUM gas. after about 100 miles change out fuel filter 1 last time..add SEAFOAM every 3-5000 miles and you should be fine. the ethanol in the gas turns to goop and adds water to your fuel, and puts carbon on your valves and through out your emission and fuel system. The ethanol will be alright as long as you follow these instructions. and the SEAFOAM will keep you from having line freeze up in the cold months ahead, and will give you better gas mileage. good luck.
