If it is a gasoline Case...for sure! I have no idea what you spent the $$$ for but if it was for a tune up you got screwed. Check the distributor, rotor, plugs and timing. If it is a diesel it definitely is timing.

SOURCE: No power up hills

The engine has a compression problem.
Check if the engine is consuming water or coolant liquid.
If coolant liquid level is slowly going down as you drive then you have an head gasket problem, and that is the reason for loosing compression.

If not you will have to check caburetor settings or electronic fueling depending on the engine.

SOURCE: car lurches and bucks, rpms erratic on acceleration on hills

You could have any of these problems:
1) vacuum leak- broken air hose or disconnected air hose.
2) water in the gasoline- add a water remover to you gas tank.
3) bad or disconnected spark plug wire(s).
If this were my Forester, I'd take it to a mechanic who has a electronic engine tester..

I have 2006 kia rio the catalytic converter heated,i changed but still it can't climb hill.when idle i noise in the air cleaner housing.


You have not addressed why the cat overheated. One cause is the engine running rich. If you have not fixed that then the problem will still be present. That appears to be the case due to lack of power. Describe the noise

1985 S10 looses power when climbing hills


You went directly to the plugged exhaust statement,and if he is wrong you are out of a large expense, how about the air cleaner if it is plugged it will do the same thing,a plugged fuel filter will do the same,a plugged exhaust will loose power even on a level road way,

I have a 2001 grand prix gt 3.8 down to 15 mpg possible egr valve bad how do i check it has no power and barely climbs hills


Catalytic converter may be clogged. If engine light is on use the ODB-II code reader to find code. OR you could try disconnecting the cat from the Y pipe. Only do this if you can free up the bolts or have new bolts to replace broken ones. If you separate this part of the exhaust, fire up the engine take for a drive. If you have all power back then thats your problem. This experiment is loud though but worth it.

Power fadded over a few days now its dead. Fuel Pump?


It's quite possible to ruin a fuel pump by letting it run dry, especially if it already has years of use. When you first turn on the key, leave the door open and see if you can hear a high pitched whine for about three seconds. That would be the pump priming the system. If you don't hear it, then the pump isn't working. Be sure to turn the key of for about 10 seconds before you try listenng again(it has to reset). It can be hard to hear, especially over the key buzzer.

Coil pack should in the front top of motor, with engine running remove one spark plug wire at a time from coil pack ( careful not to get shock ) they should all have spark, if one don't replace coil pack.

What causes a 1998 grand caravan 3.3 liter to lose speed climbing a hill with the cruise set but it will hold the vehicle back going down a hill


you have higher torque need when pulling the vehicle up hill but less going down because it does not require as much power to hold your van back. Hope this helps
