1996 Dodge ram 1500 5.9L won't accelerate properly

Have a fuel pressure test done on the manifold as you may have a faulty fuel return regulator valve which is not allowing the pump to build up the required pressure but instead is allowing the fuel to flow back to the tank

did you install the fuel pump yourself? no offense, but maybe the fuel lines are cross connected or there is no power to the pump. Sit in your truck with the windows up and turn on the ignition on and off. Listen for the fuel pump running, have somebody do that while you listen in on it from the outside, if its too faint. check your wires and fuses. over time weird **** just happens. good luck

1996 dodge 1500 5.2 no fuel pump w/key on,relay good,

I would check voltage at the fuel pump relay, and check for resistance in the wirring from relay to pump. It is common for a fuel pump develope a dead spot as you describe it. Is what actually happens most of the time is that the pump gets week enough so that it will not start with fuel pressure load and run fine without load. Can not say for shure weather your fuel pump is bad or not as I do not Know What led you to the conclusion that it was not working. If you are confident that lack of fuel pressure was your trouble I would bet the fuel pump is the problem.
