When was the last time you changed the fuel filter or air filter...common causes are air filter, or blocked air intake, dirty carb, bad plug, wires, distributer, distributer button, fuel filter, water in gas, old gas,plugged exhaust pipe and last but not least and believe it or not too much dirt under the gas peddle.... and in one case passing cable fell off the carb.
could be alot of thing kia's a/c draind alot of horse power ,plus going up hill.try turn of a/c on hills.thats the owner of 3 kia's opinion . engine lacks power obstructed exhaust ,catylitic converter. defective plugs and or wires. fuel injection needs cleaned , air filter ,automatic transaxle fluid to much or to little and last my favorite the emmision control system . these are just the main culprits . only you can be the judge of how steep the hills are and how bad the power loss is
kia's have small engines. ive owned 3 . they all have no power on hills and they all had loss of power with the a/c on . and to answer your question loss of power can also be caused by catalytic converter. yes could be plug wires,coil,fuel injectors need cleaned, air filter, tranaxle fluid low or over full, fuel filter,emission system,list goes on
The distributor cap is a common problem on these truck an may need to be replaced.Also the catalytic converter may be plugged or pieces from the inside of it may have worked there way to the muffler and choked it off.These are the most common problems for power loss.
