During acceleration surging & loss of power now only able to get 20mph. replaced fuel filter and pump, spark plugs and wires and boots, upstream 02sensor
Every time I drive it gets slower now won't go over 20mph.
A couple days ago I noticed my steering would suddenly pull to the left or right while driving at random times. Not a serious pull, but enough to be noticeable. This wasn't related to braking as I mostly noticed it while accelerating. Today it sounds like theres a metallic noise coming from the passenger front side. It may be coincidence, but these issues started happening after I used 4x4 for the first time on my used (new) truck. Tire pressure is good and I don't notice any unusual wear on the tires. Ive checked the steering response underneath the truck by jiggling the wheel to the left and right and everything seems to be responding fine.

Can anyone give me some ideas on what the problem may be? Thanks!
New spark plug wires, installed but did not get numbered
Miss fire # 6 cyclder
There was a smell of burning electrical, so I turned off the fan and ac. Next time I started the truck up, there was no fan on any settings. The ac light still came on, but no cooling took place. Prior to this there were no symptoms. The blower resistor looks like it may have been hot. There is discoloration on the bare copper parts, but the terminals look perfectly fine.
high mileage
Of additional note, it was extremely cold today. I turned my heat off & defrost etc... off to see if it was a belt related to that, but it did not remedy the issue. In fact the noise occurs when accelerating & letting off gas.
Not sure if this could be catalytic converter that needs replaced altogether or possibly the heat shield being tightened down.
I would appreciate any suggestions a constructive ideas for me to work with on this. I struggle financily, so I trust you can understand my concern to narrow down as close as I can before allowing auto repair to get in my pockets. I appreciate it greatly!

Driver door will not open. The lock doesn't work on my driver side. All other 3 doors and locks work but driver door
150k, what all maintenance/repairs neded? Timing belt, upper belts and hoses, etc.....
I thought it might be a bad tire bought new tires had them put on rims. Truck shook at 65, so thought I had bent rim , got another rim. Still shook. Now tire guy showed me you can grab brake disk on sides and wiggle it like crazy. So he tells me it's rack pinion , however my steering is tight, no leaks. No noises kulnks. So I am wondering if it is my tie rods, inner?
