You may just need a good tune up and a new fuel filter. worse case senerio is you will need a new fuel pump.

My 1967 VW Beetle loses power real bad going up hill why


Almost all 1967 VW beetles came with a 4 speed manual transmission. A few had a "semi-automatic" transmission which was basically a VW manual transmission with an electrically actuated clutch and a torque converter. For the semi-auto, there was no clutch pedal. Instead there was an electrical connector at the bottom of the stick shift. When the driver touched the shift and started to move it to shift gears, the contact would be made and the clutch engaged. This would confuse people if they were used to driving with their hand on the stick shift.

1. If the engine is racing when you go up the hill, then the clutch may be slipping. If you have the semi-auto, then the torque converter may be bad.

2. If the engine is not racing and you're just losing power, then there may not be enough gas getting to the engine. Check the fuel pump output as another answer suggests. The carb's float and needle valve may not be opening all the way, thereby not allowing enough fuel into the carb. Or, you may have a partially blocked main jet in the carb which is not letting enough fuel to flow into the engine.

Loss of power when driving up hill


It depends: how steep are the hills? Assuming you have the standard 4-speed or 5-speed gearbox, it's likely that the tiny engine (built for economy, not for power) is simply not generating enough torque to pull the car up in high gear. Have you tried simply downshifting? If the problem truly is the engine losing power and not just lugging due to being in too high a gear on a steep grade, you should check your fuel pressure and you may also want to check the condition of the fuel pump and feeder lines inside the gas tank. A 20 year old car will probably have some disintegration of the feeder lines, they may even be partly broken off inside the tank resulting in poor fuel flow, or disintegrated rubber may be gumming up the strainer or the pump itself. Personally, I'd replace the fuel lines, fuel filter and if low pressure still exists, the fuel pump as well.

Try to replace the ignition coil. Defective ignition coil will stop to function when it gets hot. When it cools down, it will function again.
