Put some redex through your your fuel system as your valves are not closing fully due to carbon build up hence lack of power becomes apparent especially on hills DO IT

What is wrong with my dodge neon when back fires and no power going up hills


You have a bad coil, most likely. Check the catalytic converter also at a shop. Possibly bad spark wire(s). Last but not likely, a prob with the PCM .

My 2005 cts misses when going up hills on the highway. i push the gas peddle down further and it is fine?


You notice the miss when going up a hill because you are putting the motor under load, sounds like time for tune-up, pretty sure the miss is there all time, but you just notice it more when under load

93 1500 350 4wd misses when letting off gas.mainly when truck is going down hill or not under load.


Are you sure that it misses on the over run or dose it back fire, when backing off if so then its a hole in the exhaust system plus to much fuel getting through when on the power and building up gas fumes in the muffler also check the timing as it can also give you the same trouble.

Let me know how it goes ....................Ron

I have a 1998 Mercury Topaz that starts to miss under acceleration and can hardly make 100k per hour. Ignition system is ok. The problem seems to be in the fuel system. New fuel filter installed and...


Even tho the ignition seems ok, I'd check the ignition cables to the plugs. Sometimes these break down over time... it will idle and drive ok, but when you need power for a hill, or acceration, that's when the wires faults start to show up.
A quick test is to put the car in drive with your left foot on the brake FIRMLY while you press the accerator... if the miss and lack of power shows up, it's usually the ignition cables to the plugs.
