Motor Bucking And Kicking Most At High Rpm

I need some help with my truck.its a 2001 having a problem with it just running like crap for about a sometimes runs alright and sometimes runs like pukes when i floor it from a stop and realy bucks at high rpm.latley if i park it on the incline of my house pad with the motor going up hill it has a hard time starting in the morning.i ran some some dirty fuel back when all this started. it always helped when i changed the fuel filter,but now it only helps a little .last time i had a good amount of fine silt like crap in the bottom of the filter helped out alot after changing the filter and cleaning all the carp out of the i dont know if i have a lot of crap in the tank or my lift pump or injector pump is going bad.any help would be great.

Welcome to the TDG. :Thumbup:

Sounds like you need to drop the fuel tank and clean it out. Then see how it acts.

A fuel pressure gauge would a wise purchase. The fuel also lubes the fuel injection pump. No lube oil like the earlier fuel injection pumps.

I agree, you may have run enough trash throught the VP44 that it cannot function properly. I would personally get the fuel pressure guage in case there is a chance of saving the VP44.
