Q: My truck bogs down when I accelerate going down the road

asked by on

It doesn't do this all the time but When I'm going down the road after about 30 minutes of driving my truck will sometimes bog down when I try to push on the gas pedal and it acts like it's going to cut off and the engine misfires.i can hear it. I have changed my fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs and wires, distributor cap, rotor button, air filter and the problem is still consistent. My fuel injectors are clean. I smell gas all the time too so I think I have a rich fuel mixture. It does this about every 2 to 3 days. I'm not sure what else it could be. Need help ASAP. Thank you.
