When you pointed uphill the vehicle or downhill how much fuel do you have in the tank? If is low,surely one reason is the fuel capacity in the tank and it is not enough for the fuel pump pick up to reach.

Why do my car slow down going up hills.and go normal on straight roads


sounds to me it could be a plugged catalytic converter. the symptoms are runs good , no strain, or on the flats, then loses power with exertion, or long uphill to the point you think it's going to just quit on you. easy test is to unbolt the catalytic inlet, and give it a quick test run. sometimes you can tell by having someone race the engine while you monitor the exhaust to see if enough comes out of it. usually happens over 75,000 miles

Power loss on hills


Get the codes scanned, if it is the cat-convertor, you can either replace one or both. If they're bolt-on you can save alot by replacing yourself. Welded on is shop job.I used a technique using lacquer thinner to rid the carbon out of the cats. One pint to half a tank. It'll smoke and buck for a little while, but does work.

NO accelleration on hills


disconnect your air mass sensor then drive to see if the problem went away. this sensor tells the computer when the air filter is bad. a bad air mass sensor will change the computer setting and make your car loose power.

When i go up a hill or any slope i can feel that my winstar is back fireing. the rpm's like jump up and down like it is struggling. i recently changed spark plugs and wires. what else can it be.


Generally speaking when a car stalls out going uphill, a few things come to a mechanical mind.

1. Going uphill produces a strain on the engine and drive components, if you have the old points and coil type vehicle one could suspect a faulty ignition coil as the culprit.

2. A vehicle on an incline may be low on fuel and thus stalls on a hill because it is starving for fuel on this incline.

3. A faulty float inside the float bowl of your carburator may be the problem.

Cruise control will not maitain the speed it is set on. going up a hill it gets slower and going down a hill it gets faster


My experience is that cruise control works on level roads, uphill you have to control speed yourself same for downhill. Exception is very powerful cars. Did it maintain speeds before? (uphill + downhill)

Replace fuel filter, spark plugs and definately plug wires. You should also make sure intake filter is clean and clear.

Buick LeSabre 2000 has hesitation uphills


It could be the fuel filter. Check fuel pressure and volume.
