Could be dirty fuel filter or a leak in the gas tank seam messing with your fuel pressure. Another cause could be the fuel pressure regulator.

Cuts out at 2500 rpms and dies on idle


2 possible reasons
1--- failed cat converter blocking the exhaust
2---EVAP system not venting the fuel tank properly
run the fault codes and have an exhaust shop check the at converter

Truck starts fine and idles ok. spits and sputters at 2000 to 2500 rpms and will not rev over 2500 rpms. i've already replaced the MAF sensor.


CLOGGED FUEL FILTER OR CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS.WILL CAUSE SPUTTERING AND MISFIRE.LEAKING EGR VALVE WILL CAUSE ROUGH IDLING SPUTTERING.

Sounds electrical - - check the distributor and remove the cap - check the wiring - you may have to replace the point module. - check it and it is not too expensive to replace.
Check the ROTOR - and also the CAP for a CRACK - do not remove the plug wires but ONE AT A TIME -

With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.
