1997 Dodge Ram 5.8 l. 4wd loses power

My p/u loses power intermittenly while on the road. The "check engine light" stays on. Would a clogged fuel filter cause this problem? Other suggestions? Thanks.

Yes, a clogged fuel filter could do this. The lack of fuel pressure in the cylinder and rails can make your CEL come on. It also could be a number of things, air, or spark. I would start by going to Autozone to see if your truck is giving any codes. They will hook up there OBDII up to your computer for free.
