    have you performed any maintenance to your truck yet?

    Fuel Filter
    Plugs/wires/cap & rotor


    Any recent modifications?

    Check engine light on?

    you should probably have the codes read then. Might lead to the problem

    You said "cleaned my ram air"-do you mean you cleaned the air filter?? If it is an oiled filter some of them have caused problems with the mass air sensor-the sensor that tells your electronic control unit how much air you have coming in , so it can tell your fuel injection how much fuel to spray out to match that air.

    K&N had this problem years ago, that is why they now oil them at the factory, so they aren't over oiled.

    Find out what the codes are-they will tell you the answer. O2 sensors can also cause problems, but usually they just cause poor FE since your vehicle just uses some fixed map to decide how much fuel to spray in when the O2 sensors are dead.
