well before we took my truck in to get painted it started actin up and cuttin out a little.. we changed the fuel filter and my old one was terrible.. thought that might fix it but it still does it.. goin easy on the gas at about 50mph and less is fine.. but when you floor it or get on it pretty hard it starts cuttin out.. its kinda like a "blooop.. blooop" then go type of thing.. its wierd.. any opinions on this?

Hmm... Fuel pumps usually work, or they don't, not really in between, but I wouldn't rule it out. Is the SES light on? also, how clean is your air filter (wild guess) ?

Check the fuel pressure:read:. That'll tell ya if the pumps acting up....may wanna change the fuel filter before you do a pressure test.

Could Pewter00 have dirty tank that the contents from the bottom of the tank going into the new fuel filter instead of the fuel pump being the problem? I am just throwing out an idea, also might want to run a top end cleaner to be on the safe side.

Well, the pump picks up the gas before it hits the filter....so that wouldn't work.

Pumpm will slowly go out.....many just die...but some take a while. My brothers started going south and didn't start to really get bad for 3 months. I changed it before it quit but they can go slow.
