Question about Suzuki Vitara
No power when going up hill could be a plugged catalytic converter or fuel filter. A bad ignition control module will act up when the engine gets hot and not energize the coils so they can provide spark to the spark plugs. There could also be a bad coil. The ticking could be a bad coil or spark plug wire that is shorting and arcing. If you take a spray bottle with some water and lightly mist the coils and spark plug wires with the engine running in the dark (outside at night) you will see the arcing. Autozone will test your ignition control module and coils for free.
