My Ram 3500 is running a little funny.While driving,when I hit the gas anything better then medium pressure it starts choking out.

I've added fuel treatment and the pumps are new.

It sounds like a faulty fuel filter or fuel pump. The transmission or the idle control valve could also be the one causing the problem. You need to have you car checked by a mechanic or an authorized dealer so that the problem can be identified and fixed.

I was just thinking fuel pump/filter as well. I just replaced mine and it runs magnificent. Gas mileage is way better. Check to see if you filter is a part of your pump in the tank, that's how mine was and most other Dodge's

If you have a 0-60 plus gauge you could check fuel pressure, the pump could be defective. Was this the reason you replaced the pump and filters in the first place? I'm guessing it is. Did you replace the air filter as well?
