Question Asked: I have a 98 dodge ram 1500 2wd manual trans and accelerates super slow.

If stopped, I have to ease on the gas, almost to catch the acceleration, but it does eventually speed up, just really slowly. The rest of the gears are a bit better, but there is just no power to accelerate much at all. If I push the gas to the floor it revs up high, just like it's supposed to in that gear, but just won't power the truck along with it. If starting on an incline, I find myself muttering prayers under my breath that it will make it up the hill and not just die out along the way. The gears all change fine, no problems with the clutch changing them, and I've had it over 100km on the highway, but it took awhile to get up there! I know the throttle cable needs replacing, but in what order would u suggest I try fixing what, first? Also, I have no reverse lights when I shift into reverse, thought I'd throw that one in as well?
