SOURCE: my problem is that my

Well, I have had similar problems with my girlfriends car. The car would struggle and have a real hard time moving. As it turned out it was missing transmission oil from a leakage in the oil cooling lines. I replaced the lines before connecting the return line I started the car with the pressure the transmission emptied itself. I was then able to put brand new transmission oil in there and just to be safe and avoid headaches later on I also added a bottle Automatic transmission treatment such as Trans Medic. Car now runs like new. Another problem could be a clogged oil filter. On most models then can be easily changed. Some cars have them on the outside just like the oil filter. They actually look the same. Most of them have one inside the pan. all you need is a new gasket and filter and new fluid. Hope this can help.

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Ram won't go

If the catalytic converter has been inoperative for a long time there could have been soot or even creosote deposits in the muffler and they could have clogged even it. So first disconnect the muffler and see how the truck behaves.

How many hours will a xlt 1200 rebuild last for

If a rebuild was done to new specs and there were no short cuts or reused old bits because they looked good and were in side limits I would expect around 75% of the new time up to when the rebuild was necessary i9f not more. A rebuild if done properly should last as long as the original motor but unfortunately the cost causes most people to take shot cuts and use after market parts so the useful life will be less
