Default Wont accelerate at all

1999 ford ranger xlt
everything is in good conditions except the acceleration

I step on the gas literally all the way to the floor, the engine forces it self, but the damn truck will only accelerate like 5mph in 10 seconds....this is when im already going 40+ mph.

any suggestions on whats wrong with it?

the motor and transmission are in perfect conditions.

see i was thinking it was the fuel filter cuz it hasnt been changed in years. i figured that the fuel line pressure sucks so im not getting any power out of it. idk if that also a possibility...

i had a 93 xl that did that, spit and sputter, almost stall out when i started in gear and could climb hills. I spent close to 1,000.00 trouble shooting it myself and turned out to be a bad coil pack, and plugs were just old and on their way out. Is it making noise almost sounds ike a back fire when you accelerate up hills?

no noise...not at all....thats y i doubt its he coil. the ignition is flawless, there is not even a hint of backfire. the motor revs and purs like a charm, all thats wrong with it is just a great loss of power when going up hill. and on straight aways, the 1st and 2nd gear are hell for it to pick up.
