Default engine miss 2000-3000 rpm

engine won't rev past 2k-3k. gas gauge doesn't work (low fuel light works). When I add fuel additive, revs higher for a while. same RPM limit in any gear. runs up to 80 mph, just can't get there very fast.

rotor/cap/wires look good, pump has been replaced before. 1994 5.2 2-wheel drive

my thoughts: fuel pump or collapsed fuel line (I'm in S. California, lots of ethanol).

Any help is appreciated!

1994 - it should still have the frame rail mounted fuel filter; has it been replaced recently?

What kind of shape is the cat(s) on it?

Ralph, the 94 5.2 has an in-tank filter. Id look at eh cats too. I would think a fuel line collapse would cause lean condition and detonation.

Yes it does.

And you're right, I was thinking 1992/1993 which still had the frame mounted filter. Also.
