Is beginning to miss at 95K when in a strain.

This only happens when going up a hill or when the engin is in a strain. Is it time for a tune up and can I do this?

Why does my car quit running when I pull a hill?

Probably needs a tune up. Engine load increases on hills, putting a lot of strain on ignition system.

Smell gas going down hill in my suzuki samuri 1989

most cars this old , the CAT is missing rodded out or dead.
and all cars with no cat stink. all ! and lots of CO. (deadly)
tune it out doors.

the carb must be tuned to burn all the fuel.
and webers are the hardest to tune. (But run better than all, once tuned) the Harley CV carb is vastly more easy to tune. FYI.
we use a wide band oxy sensor tool to tune carb now 100x more easy.
the tool was $1200 but not $140
what engine is there, G13? (most now, are upgraded)
the G13 has a mech, distributor. and the advancing weights must work like new. (not stuck"rust")
the dizzy must advance fully or carb tuning is a head to wall slam.
if the dizzy fails, it will not burn all the fuel. and will stink bad.

So using a timing light check the full advance.
the sammi FSM is free.
here it is.

weber 101 tuning is beyond the scope of any post here.

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

It seems like a spark plug wire issue, with the missing and strain when i'm going up hills, etc. However, I was told that it wasn't the wires because in addition to the missing and stuff, when idling, it...

Check the coil packs that the spark plug wires are attached to if you're getting a misfire. Check pressure coming from your exhaust because of a clogged converter. UNDERHOOD (right side) - you will see the OBD1 connector. Try using a scan tool if the check engine light is on

Engine won't stay running when going up hill. Engine wants to stall when under strain. Idles fine in neutral.

sounds like a cat convertor plugged up, maybe timing is off, needs tune up real bad??? Has it had new plug wires in the last 50k miles?

1999 denali-5.7- looses power and starts to shimmy...then shifts down and struggles to stay at speed...service engine soon light begins to flash and eventually comes on solid. This happens intermittently...

flashing check engine light is a sever engine misfire that will cause a catalytic convertor failure which is about a $1500 repair in your denali. Have someone scan the code for you and let us know the codes stores in the computer are. Could be as simple as a tune up to fix the problem or bad as a fuel pump

Car loses power

When the check engine light is flashing that indicates an engine misfire, which is catalyst damaging. Because you said that it generally only happens up a long hill or at higher speed, and it doesnt happen all of the time, most likely you are in need of a full tune up.
