My Ford Transit Diesel 2007 (camper van)intermitantly loses power and the Engine Malfunction light comes on. If I stop, turn off the engine and restart it a few minutes later everything goes like a ch

When the engine is under load it uses more fuel then normal .First replace the fuel filter then check the fuel pressure and flow. the pressure and flow are checked with gauges. For a rough check remove the return pipe from the fuel rail, if fuel is flowing there the fuel system should be ok providing the pressure valve is not stuck open. if there is no flow there the pump may be at fault.

Clacking noise when going up steep hills

What you may be hearing is called "octane ping". It occurs when the engine is under heavy load and the fuel does not have enough octane to efficiently run the engine. Older engines like yours were often run on premium gasoline to avoid this. However, if you do not have the clacking when accelerating on level ground and only have it on the steeper hills, it is not necessary to spend more money for mid-grade of premium fuel. Only if the engine makes the noise under normal operation is this advised. A little octane ping in those situations will not hurt the engine. But, if you need the peace of mind, and to ensure that the clacking IS octane related, I would try one tank of premium and retest the engine of a hill you know causes the problem to see if it goes away.

Surging/loss of power up steep hills in Daewoo Lanos 2001

This sounds like you may correct in saying a misfire. this sounds like a bad coil that looses power under a load. Is check engine light on?
If the light is on or not go to an auto parts store like auto zone.At auto zone they will scan the computer free of charge and give you a print out of any codes. the computer will store code or codes when it detects a problem. A bad coil will make it store a code or should.
see if there are any misfire codes, this code will help pin point the bad coil. if there are codes write me back and give me the code. I think this car has coil over plug ignition system. this just means instead of sparkplug wires the coil sits right on the top of the plug.
Also replace spark plugs if it has been a while since they have been replaced. check air filter too. a matter of fact if you have over 70,000 miles on car tune it up. plugs,furl filter if it has one, air filter and pvc valve and clean throtle body.
Okay, just checked it out, this car if a 1.6 engine then does have a coil but not on spark plug, rather coil with sparkplug wires going to plugs. try replacing spark plug wires and plugs first and if problem remains then replace the coil. let me know the results. good day

AC stopped blowing cold and check battery ight on

If your battery light is may have lost your alternator.
The battery light or gauge for that matter is merely an indicator to show if the battery is feeling a charge.
If it don't feel the charge...the light comes on.
I'd have your alternator checked at your local parts house...a lot of them will test it for free.

As for the A/C...when an engine gets under a load, the A/C usually cuts out to give the engine less work like going up a steep hill, or passing another car, or if the alternator quits charging the battery.

Hope this helps...

It bogs down when you go up a hill or when you give it full throtle

I had the same problem with mine, it did not pick up speed on the hills and max at 35mph on steep climbs. It ended up being a diaphram on the back of the carborator that does not come in the carb rebuild kit so you will have to find a carborator specialist in your area and see if they carry it. That diaphram controls the secondaries for the extra horse power needed for picking up speed and going up hills.

95 Landcruiser Turbo warning light comes on under heavy load

If you are "lugging" the engine, you will get increased exhaust temperature (EGT), this will trigger your "turbo" light(not a good thing), ideally you should have an aftermarket "pyrometer" fitted to your car, this will show you the optimum revs etc you should be using in any given circumstance.Or revise your driving technique, ie change down gears earlier.
The turbo should be idled down after long trips or heavy towing, this allows the oil temps to stabilise and turbine speeds to stabilise, thus idle for 2-5 minutes.
