This could be anything from an ignition issue to a clogged catalytic converter. If the converter is clogged you may have a fueling issue that caused it to break down prematurely. This would have to be addressed before replacing the cat that is if the cat is plugged. Now if you have an ignition issue this also could cause the cat to deteriorate quicker. Either way it sounds like your going to have to have a professional look at it. Now if your lucky it may just be a bad sensor. But the question is which one. Again this is money wisely spend if you leave this to a professional.

The check engine light came on and instantly no acceleration just a major putt, putt, putt! What caused this?


First guess, catalitic converter. But you need to have the codes read first. This will point you in the right direction.

Loss of acceleration and power on 2003 dodge ram 1500


The acceleration may be an issue with the clutch or with engine.  If it is a manual tranny, you may have a worn out clutch.  For automatic, you may need to have the solenoid cleaned or have the tranny serviced
Other issue could be on the engine, check first the fuel filter especially if you encounter loss of power when running.

No power up hills


The engine has a compression problem.
Check if the engine is consuming water or coolant liquid.
If coolant liquid level is slowly going down as you drive then you have an head gasket problem, and that is the reason for loosing compression.

If not you will have to check caburetor settings or electronic fueling depending on the engine.
