Your Rpm needs to be high in this little 4 banger makes the most torque at 4000rpm and horse power peeks out around 5600rpm. I own a 95 side kick gotta gear down espicialy if you've put bigger tires on

7.5l MFI/SFI timing (?) problems


Hi, you describe a chugging even on moderate hills, is your transmission shifting properly? It sounds like it's stuck in overdrive. Or a plugged injector or two that maybe push out fuel OK in warm up mode but not after. So if your transmission is downshifting when is should and you still have no power, I would have the injectors checked out. Good luck, chuckb

My 92 Chevy with a 350 TBI.new plugs set .035 new cap new rotor. Starts up ok idealso good oil pressure is good water temp is good. Interstate holds 80 no problem. But at take off she bogs also low rate...


Well if the timing mark is jumping around that's a good sign that the timing chain is streched and there is play in the chain that could cause the timing to be off does it ever stall out after it bogs and going up hill on the interstate that's your over drive kicking in and out trying to keep you at speed try timing it at the correct timing then take it on the road when you start going up a hill take it out of over drive see if that stops the shifting up an down good luck

VW 2013 Golf Automatic stays in 1st gear when driving uphill. Have to pull over after hill, stop, park and then go for engine to autocorrect. VW service center mechanic says this is how it's supposed to be...


There is no problem with the revs going to 3 or 6. The revs need to climb so you have enough power to climb the hill (if the car upshifts under heavy load it may stall). But are you saying that the only way you can get it to shift out of first is to turn off the car? if so, then that is obviously not supposed to happen. It should shift shortly after you start driving down hill.

1983 f150 with 351 windsor. Recent problem of bogging down when climbing moderate hills. Also sounds of ticking noise, lifters or manifolds leak? Any help much appreciated.


A leaking exhaust manifold could make a ticking noise. So could a lifter or valve. The exhaust noise would be louder under load.
If the carb is running too lean, or you have a vac leak, the lean fuel mixture could make the exhaust leak worse, and cause the loss of power.

My 1998 Dodge Ram seems to lose power especailly going up hill and then chugs.


You may check the exhaust system, I had this happen with a same year Dakota and it would bog down the more I tried to accellerate. My cat had fallen apart inside and clogged up the pipe.
