2008 toyota hiace lack of power

what even? we cant guess that?
lots of engines used, world wide, and country ?
lack of power can be cause by 50 things. on all engines.
but ill roLL the dice for you and land on GASOLINE, (not diesel)
1: never tuned up this decade, (spark plugs, filters. , fluids,etc)
2: bad spark.
3: loss of fueling to one one or more cylinders. or bad compression.
4: leaking injectors.
5: ECU/PCM , in limp home and owner not using a scan tool to scan it and see why. and ignoring the CEL lamp (check engine lamp)
there are lots more, but all checks take tools.
so are you DIY ? and have tools? or are you just wanting a guess.
i guess #1, the all time cause of car engines not running right.
lack of proper service.

Starving of fuel

Remove fuel filler cap and retry.

If no luck then check the engine for a vacuum leak.
You can try placing your hand over the carb intake and cranking or running the engine. If you feel a lack of vacuum, then you may have a vacuum leak. Check the intake manifold for cracks or gasket leaks.
Do a compression test on the engine. If it lacks compression, then it may also lack vacuum and may likely require major attention.

Lack of power thunderbird sc 1990

This code doesn't cause any lack of power, the fact of the matter is that code 25 is most likely a symptom of the problem, the engine has excessive spark knock being sensed. Have the engine compression tested and have it checked for a misfire. Also have the fuel pressure tested, low fuel pressure can cause this lack of power as well/

I don't know this engine in detail, but we can make a few general statements. In that type of engine, lack of power can be caused by

- a bad spark (check spark plugs for gap and fouling, measure coil resistances, check plug leads)
- lack of fuel (weak fuel pump, blocked filter, blocked jets in carby)
- engine timing off spec (use a timing light to check this)
- lack of compression (use a compression gauge to check this)

Of all these, I'd start with engine timing, then look at a blocked jet in the carby.

When i accelerate going up hill the motor losses power (not electrical power) and the check engine light goes on

Your car most likely is suffering from ownerhatesme syndrome. This is most likely caused by:
A)lack of a much needed oil change.
B)lack of a much needed tune up.
C)lack of transmission fluid.
D)lack of a full systems check.
And finally
E)lack of love from the owner. For they are responsible for buying a ford when they know fords are known to break down and go bad over a short period of time.

And if you have done everything said above, the only problem could be a very dirty engine that struggles to get gas into the engine fast enough, or through corroded pipes. A full systems check is all you need to know the steps you need for your (F)ixed (O)r (R)epaired (D)aily to run smoothly again.

Hope it helps.

Engine shut down during driving and wont restart

Three things cause an engine not to start. Lack of fuel, Lack of spark ( ignition ) and lack of compression. If you spray a little starting fluid into the aircleaner and it starts and theen quits, then you know it is a fuel problem if it won't start on starting fluid then it may be electrical. I am assuming the compression is good. If it was not then your engine would sound like a sewing machine when turning over. If it is electrical, there are quite a number of culprits, if it is fuel related suspect the pump or the power supply to the pump.
