Low fuel pressure could be the cause. Change the fuel filter, and if no help, have the pressure tested. If you have multi-port injection, the pressure should be high- about 40 psi.

My 1995 dodge ram 1500 will bottom out going up hills. When you accelerate at about 2.5 rpms it drops out and won't gain any power


Your fuel pump is not being supplied with adequate fuel pressure to deliver to your engine on an incline because of an obstruction in the fuel tank that changes from level to inclined. I have seen this on many vehicles over 15 years old mostly from rust, debris, and just plai bad gas. Have the fuel tank removed, cleaned and a new "Fuel Sock" (a sort of filter device made of a wire mesh) installed and the fuel lines blown out from front to rear. This should give you plenty of get up and go no matter what the angle your vehicle is in.

Try cleaning the throttle body (throttle body cleanner ONLY). Uncover the TB (engine off) & inspect the butterfly by moving the throttle by hand, if the underside & down inside the TB has a bunch of carbon (black soot) that could hamper with the idle! Also, check the fuel pressure @ the rail, under 60 psi could cause bad idle. Air filter clean? Did you make SURE that the terminals under the spider injector wiring harness has NO pins bent over during connection?! Also could check the throttle possition sensor & the mass air flow sensor if need be.
