Lacks power going up hills

It turns over and starts but as soon as I go to go up a hill there is no real power to speak of. It moves at a sluggish pace. no matter how fast i'm going it moves at a very slow pace

Lacks get up and go


I had similar problem with mine replaced the air flow meter and gave it a oil change and before putting oil back in I put 3 litres of auto transmission oil in it and ran in on full idle for 15mins drained that and then oil. This was from the advice of my dad who is a mechanic.
