    When I am driving and I get on the throttle at higher RPM's or going at higher speeds sometimes my truck seems to hesitate a little. Could it be fuel filter or spark plugs?

    It could be a number of things.

    Some basic things to do/check:
    - change fuel filter
    - change plugs
    - clean throttle body
    - seafoam
    - change air filter

    It could be a few things. Those you listed included. have you cleaned the throttle body at all? if so, have you ran seafoam through it?

    I am already on the gas when it does it...kind of feels like power loss for a second.

    I have not replace anything on it yet except O2 sensors.

    It's a cleaner found at all auto parts stores. Search it on youtube.com once.

    Where do you put the seafoam at? I got 104,000 miles. I hardly drive it because I have a work truck for my job. So if it goes anywhere its just to the store

    You slowly pour 1/4-1/3 into your vacuum lines and the remainder into your gas tank.

    After putting it in the vacuum line, turn off your truck and let sit for 10-15 minutes, no more. Start the truck. It will smoke like a sumbitch......this is NORMAL. Just don't let the truck stall while pouring.

    How long will it take for the seafoam to totally be gone?

    I thought it was 1/3 vacuum lines, 1/3 crankcase and 1/3 gas tank?

    Was I mis-informed?
