Default Wanting more power..

My truck seems to be driving fine the first 30 minutes, but after a while the pedal softens up and it feels like the truck has no power. When it goes into 3rd and 4th gear, I get a slow throttle response. Has anybody ever had this problem?

Do you have a check engine light? Any misfire codes? If none, maybe check fuel pressure, plugged cat, how do your plugs look? If it was a Chevy, might check for worn cam lobes.(bad attempt at humor)

The light is on, When i took it to get checked they told me it was a sensor. Ill take a look at the plugs later on today. I had the engine rebuilt back in December 2013 and its been acting up ever since.

there is your issue...something isnt right...in theory your truck should have more power when its warm (operating temp)

i dont know what it could be, but id go to who ever rebuilt it and see what they say....
