Need help!!

I have a 93 automatic that gets to 2000 rpms and just cuts out and starves for fuel. Sometimes it regains itself and keeps going till it reaches 2k again or it just pukes out...a mechanic put a 400$ low preasure pump on but did not solve @#$t...lol everyone says the fuel line is collapsed inside so i bought a new line but the existing one has a large fitting on the tank side and a small one on the pump side?? the diameter of the hose is diff on each side...is there a inline filter or reducer under the frame rail somewhere? i could not see anything but i am no mechanic...i didnt have the right size fittings on the new fuel line so i took the old one off and blew it out really thurow and now the truck runs worse and wont even drive for more than 2 mins...is the line my problem? and sdhould i put diff size connections on each end and call it good? I am ready to punch my wife in the throat for buying this truck site un seen and am afraid the throat shot could end our marriage!!!! plz help THX!

Well 2000rpm is pretty much it for an E7 but we need more info to help you. What model of truck is this, what model engine(mechanical or vmac1 electronic), when did the issue start or has it always been this way since you got it? A 93 CH with a VMAC E7 won't run over 2000rpm, the power band rums out at 1800 so you may be trying to do something the truck was never built to do.

I'd get a set or two of fuel filters particularly if the tanks were so dirty you felt the need to flush them. That may have stirred enough other stuff up that your filters are loaded. Is there a screan in the tank that might be inspected? I'm not sure but I'd start with filters and screans and then the line. The booster pump could be plugged up too if it is in front of the filters. On a side note please don't speak violence against the Mrs. It's not right even if that thing explodes in flames.

Good luck

They're both mounted to brackets on or near the engine, probably one on each side, left rear and right front. Get both fuel filters swapped out again and we can go from there, is an electronic pump engine or mechanical?
