Take it to someone who can read the OBDII scan codes out of the computer. You may be seeing signs of incipient catastrophic engine failure.

Most likely you have a bad COP (Coil On Plug) .
Maybe more than one. Very common ford problem for last 12 years.
If you get a MIL Light on the dash (the wrench),check for a PO300 Code.
A PO304 would be coil #4,PO306 #6 Etc.
Cyl 1 thru 4 on pass side
Cyl 5 thru 8 on driver side,front to back

Also hills cause a hi engine vacuum and thus a possible EGR Valve going bad. You can unplug the vacuum lines and plug, to diagnose that issue.

Also leave the EGR disconnected if your working on coil issues. Just note the MIL light will stay on all the time,and remember to check your 300 codes if you feel a hesitaton or miss.

2000 Dodge Stratus misses, or hesitates, when going up a hill or when at a stop and you have to let off the gas and then push it again to get it to go. In the winter, i smelled a sickly sweet smell wh


Heater core is a possibility, and monitoring your coolant level closely should tell you if it is leaking as level will go down. As far as hesitation goes, if check engine light comes on, a trip to autozone or Pep boys for a free trouble code scan, should point everyone in right direction rather than replacing parts by guessing. (much cheaper that way too)

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.
