Default 2001 5.9 hesitation/backfires

Hey fellas...

I have a 2001 Ram 1500 5.9 4x4 107k miles. I'm experiencing hesitation and backfiring under acceleration. This is the background on the truck it might not seem related but bear in there.

A few weeks ago I rebuilt the front axle. New hubs/bearings, u-joints, right and left seals, and the 4x4 actuator. The above problems happened instantly after I finished the front end. So I replaced the cap, rotor, coil, plugs, and ignition wires. Started the truck and idled fantastic. Drove it and it ran like a boss until I stopped for a red light. When I accelerated the truck fell on its face once again. Hesitation and back firing. My next step is to check fuel pressure.


Thanks in advance!

Replace the TPS (like $35), mine did that, eventually it will get to the point where it only idles and if you try to accelerate you'll be popping like crazy with NO power...
