Default 1999 Ram 1500 running trouble

I have a 1999 Ram 1500 5.9L. Some times ( not all the time though) I will be driving and it starts to (jerk) almost like it is missing. It will usually happen between 40-50 mph at between 2-3k rpm. When this starts to happen I can usually make it stop by stepping on the gas and increasing the rpms to above 3 k. The truck also seems very sluggish some mornings. Is there any advise you can give me on what to look for?

Not sure how many miles are on the truck but I suspect it's time to replace the fuel filter, plugs, wires and clean out the fuel system with a little cleaner.

Also, one primary cause of cold stalls is your EGR valve. They get carboned up and a bit sticky until they warm up. Eventually they plug up. It's an easy replacement and I'd look into that as well.

Welcome to the forum!

I've combined both your threads into this one as they duplicate one another.
