    Default Loses power around 45-55mph. helpp

    i can leave my foot at one spot and i would accelerate great, till i hit the 45-55 mark and it just loses all the acceleration. any ideas?
    could it be because im runnin 305/70/16s with stock gearing?
    i have a 2000 1500 silverado 5.3

    it loses acceleration at around 55 then i have to give the petal about 1-2 more inches for it to pick back up. when i changed the filter, the guy told me that i had water in it? but it did it before and after i changed it
    ive been reading around and some say my fuel pump is starting to fail. i dont have to money to fix this
