I think you're describing a classic case of "hesitation." Basically, the engine hesitates when you step on the gas. I would start by checking the timing with the engine at operating temperature to be sure it's within spec.

1.Start by changing plugs and wires. 2.Check for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wigglr every hose you can see, to make sure nothing is loose or cracked. 3.Change fuel filter. 4.Check timing. 5.Check air control valve. 6.Check idle control sensor.
It may be a bad starter or the starter solenoid. If by not starting you mean it will not turn engine, but if the engine is turning then the starter is turning so it is something else all together. Starters will usually work when they are cold then once warm or hot they will not work. Hope this helps!

Firstly, this is assuming that this is a 5.2 or 3.9 engine. The newer 4.7 modle would be totally different.
Sounds like a intake gasket issue(#3) intake gaskets and a belly pan gasket were quite common place one these modles.
(#2) The passing gear or kickdown is adjustable at the throttle body
(#1) This sound is quite likely normal for this truck. Have heard of many trucks sounding the same and at the time it was normal.
