Problem with my 94 5.9 magnum

    Hey guys i'm looking for some suggestions to what my problem could be. 1994 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4, 5.9l magnum v-8, 103,995. It was running fine until I got a batch of bad fuel, since then it hesitates under load, pops, and generally lacks power. Low driving range not bad, mid range no power, popping, spiting, until you mash it to the floor, then she will get up and just about tear the rear end out trying to move. All symptoms were present before and after doing the following, tune up - cap, rotor, wires, plugs, coil, fuel filter/pressure regulator, also welded up some holes in converter. I checked the injectors with a stethoscope all seam crisp and change/increase when throttle is applied. O2 sensor has triggered check engine light, so I will replace that soon. However o2 tripped the light long before I had this issue. Any help would be awesome and very much appreciated, B&B any thoughts?

    do you know for sure you are Firing on all Cylinders? Is the Fuel Rail Rusted ? Mine was and Ended up Clogging the injectors. Check Fuel Pressure at the Fuel Rail (should be a tap there)

    Cool I'm going thru it in the next few days, and I will check it to. I'm going to do a full diagnostic of everything until I lick this issue. I recently the other day had to relieve fuel pressure at the rail to change the FF/PR and it shot out like there was no tomorrow, but I will put a guage on it to make sure thank you for the tip, this dodge is very new to me, I have only had it for the summer, and after last season it was running great. thanks again guys.
