No power I have a 1994 2500 series Cehv pickup 5.7 liter. There is no power to pass or climb a hill and it has been starting hard lately. Could that be a fuel filter problem perhaps?

No power when going up hill

I have seen many pass though my shop, these are some what known for this ! There's a 95% chance it is your TPS, throttle positions sensor, now the other 5% has also been there Crankshaft Sensor and IAC, are you doing you doing the work yourself ? If you are, it would help if you get a repair manual for your car. Because then you can follow the test for each of these, you would also need a multi meter to test with. On a scale of 1~5 with 5 being the hardest, I would say it's a 2.What you need the repair book for is the voltage to test for on each of these sensors.

I have an 87 Dodge Ram pickup, if passing gear was unhooked how would it run differently?

If your overdrive is disconnected the transmission will never 'kick down' into a lower gear that would provide the torque necessary for passing or climbing hills. This malfunction SHOULD NOT cause any internal transmission problems, only driveablility and performance issues.

Ranger looses power up hill

I am assuming you have the 2.3 liter 4cylinder engine.. This is common in all rangers straight out of the factory with that motor. Your asking alot out of a 4 cylinder truck that also get good gas mileage. they just do not have the capacity to gain speed up a hill. There are a few solutions for you that you could try. If it is a 5 speed manual transmission try to speed up before the hill and when you start losing speed go to 4th gear. this is also good for using as a passing gear as im sure you have noticed you lack power when trying to rapidly accelerate at highway speed to pass. an aftermarket cold air intake combined with a less restrictive exuast will give you anywhere from 5-20 hp gain AND give you more MPG's

Or you can buy a light truck with a v6 or v8 in it. rangers can be equipped with v6 as can chevy s10's. dodge dakotas have the availability of small block v8. this is of course will cost you alot in gas (based on experience) I am a 10 yr mechanic and have owned 2- 4 cylinder rangers a 93 and a 94 my dakota which i still own is a 01

My 2001 Chevy 1500 5.3 liter z71 has been giving problems accelerating if I press the gas softly it will slowly accelerate but after a while it will not climb hills and will sputter and bog ? I've replaced...

Sounds like the engine is being starved of fuel - most common cause is a failing fuel pump or a restriction in the fuel line, but could also be something else (like the fuel pressure regulator).

My 88 toyota hilux cant climb hills. when i drive it up hill the truck will **** like its about to die out. and just recently it started to act then same when driving up hill. my truck will just die out...

Could be one of many problems. Start with fuel filter, air filter or oxygen sensor, Those are the cheap and simple ones. If little changes then it gets a lot more expensive and only a mechanic will help.

I have a 1990 toyota pickup DLX ext cab V6 5-speed

If it seems to run well otherwise, you might have a partially obstructed catalytic convertor. Usually if this is the problem, the engine will also bog down even if you try to rev it up when it is in neutral.

What causes a 1998 grand caravan 3.3 liter to lose speed climbing a hill with the cruise set but it will hold the vehicle back going down a hill

you have higher torque need when pulling the vehicle up hill but less going down because it does not require as much power to hold your van back. Hope this helps
