Hello to all!

I had a 2006 ram 1500 that I bought new but due to the poor economy I lost it a few years back.
I have a used '04 ram 1500 with 75k miles and this truck just does not perform as well as the other. Is this normal due to year difference or is there something I can do to fix it? Thanks in advance.

Maybe the throttle body has never been cleaned. When they need cleaning throttle response falls off. I think I need to clean mine. Here's a great how-to write up done by one of our own members:

Plugs and plug wires, perhaps. A Sea Foam dose can't hurt.

What kind of plugs? Is there a significant difference in the tire sizes? Bigger tires will affect acceleration.

Interesting reading. I enjoy all the thoughts and musings you blokes engage in.

If the internet did'nt exist, owning a ram in my part of the world would be a frightening experience due to the lack of information available here.

HTC makes me feel I'm not alone in the ocean of Asian automobiles.
