Sounds like a faulty throttle position sensor, but if the check engine light is on, I would take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service at no charge. Getting the code or codes will help narrow down and identify the problem. Hope this helps you find a resolution to the problem. Best wishes.

Starts great but when pressing on gas pedal truck stumbles and/or dies. Can't drive further than the alley because it seems like there is no connection to fuel. When in park the truck will accelerate a bit...

Try changeing your fuel filter Its inside the frame rail under the drivers door it could fix the problem or it could also be the fuel pump but try the filter first

2003 dodge ram 1500 hemi 4x4, no power or throttle response!

I also have an '03 Ram 1500 with the Hemi, and I too noticed that the throttle system definitely sucks. The issue lies with Chrysler opting for speed density instead of mass air flow, which is what the Hemi should have. I landed an a chatroom that had a procedure to try to fix the throttle response. Simple procedure.
1. turn the Ram on, but don't start.
2. wait 7 -10 seconds for onboard diagnostics to cycle and finish.
3. press the accelerater to the floor, using moderate leg speed and then let up.
4. shut Ram off, wait 10 seconds.
5. start up

After using this procedure, my Ram finally accelerated like a Hemi Ram should. The chatroom said that for some reason, this won't work on every Hemi Ram, but since you don't hook up into the computer, it's worth a shot.
Best of luck!

When i hit the petal to pass,the truck stumbles,then kicks in and out. with cruise control on if it has to accelerate it stumbles both happen at 70mph

Sounds like a transmission problem. If the vehicle is having the issue at a high gear then I suggest you take it in and get the tranmission flushed this may resolve the issue and only cost about $60.

Car stumbles, backfires until warm

You need to replace your distributor. There has been many problems with these. I had the same problem with my 1993 villager and had tried many different things and none worked. I went to a junk yard and got a used distributor and now it runs fine. I would try this before anything alse.

Stumbles on acceleration

Well, I would replace the air filter, make sure the air hose from the air filter to the intake is not kinked or blocked and check for vacuum leaks. If these are all fine, I would check the fuel pressure as it is possible the pump is weak and not supplying enough fuel.

Low power when accelerating

I thought the filter might be the issue here, on carb cars the engine tends to stall out with a plugged filter.
