SOURCE: car loses power when going

The first thing you need to check is fuel pressure. If you don't have a fuel pressure gauge you can buy one from a tool supplier, but the gauge may costs more than the diagnosis from a shop.
Another thing you may want to check is you catalytic convertor to make sure that it is not plugged.

SOURCE: losing power up one particular long hill

It sounds like a tranny problem. Without more info kinda hard to diagnose. The simplist thing to check is tranny fluid. If its low, going up a hill will pull fluid out of the torque converter. It could be the converter itself. It could possibly a fuel problem, but unlikely. Hope this helps. John...

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

I have a 2005 KIA sedona. And when driving it sounds like it has a turbo. It also has no umph.instead it loses power going up hill. while the turbo sound it hesitate to shift gear.


Yours should be a 2.9 crd Turbo diesel if I'm correct & from what your describing sounds like you need to change out the diesel filter. These filters get clogged causing lack of power specially going up hill.
Is it blowing out black smoke? There could be other problems as well. Need more info like is the engine light on?

Most likely fouled spark plugs, to see if it's a problem with the transmission shifting you can manually choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd anytime you want to test them
