    The glow plugs and injectors are fairly new about two years. I was told it may be a fuel filter problem beacuse it set for almost 2 years.

You should have a code stored. This is the first thing you should check for. Also the DATA can indicate what is happening . Also the age of the truck could indicate that you could have glow plugs issues or oil saturated a connector or something.

    So if were just guessing then you can throw just about any part on it to find out. Or you can get it diagnosed correctly. Just because you had new glow plugs put in doesnt rule them out as being the issue. Some replacement parts are junk and I have seen some glow plug replacements melt and destory an engine. I mean you really need a new engine if this happens.

Running fine on the highway, and loosing acceleration presure

What to you mean loosing acceleration pressure? Also what engine do you have?

3500 is often with the Cummins diesel so I'm going to assume that's what you've got. Diesels loose power like you are describing when the fuel fiter gets plugged. It's is often overlooked, and in many cases not changed frequently enough. As diesels become more and more popular, people that have never owned one before don't realize the extra maintenance they require. A good rule of thumb is to change the fuel filter every other oil change, or more frequently if you suspect dirt or water may have gotten into your tank.

Have you changed your oil? Rotella 15W-40. These engines really don't like old oil. It becomes too thick for the injection pump to work correctly. Another possibility is a bad cam sensor on the front of the motor. Most engines call this the crank sensor but on this engine you have to look it up as a cam sensor.

Attach a diagnostic computer to the leads on your engine.
Check the codes to confirm that the onboard computer is choosing to shift under the correct conditions.

Or, get your local Dodge dealer (before they go bankrupt) to run the computer-diagnosis.
