Passat 103kw tdi lost power on a hill at 100kph and engine stopped and won't restart


Lawrie, could be bad fuel, fuel filter clogged, fuel pump faulty, timing belt faulty,etc., best to find a good Tech. have them scan for trouble codes, diagnose and estimate repair.

I have a 2014 CTS. When traveling downhill with cruise control engaged, the car will downshift 2 or 3 gears causing the rpm to run up over 4000. Is this normal operation for these cars?


This is normal if you are going up hill but if you go down hill there should be very little work for the engine and transmission to do.
Going up hill as the engine starts to pull it is normal to kick into a lower gear to give the car more pulling power. If it does it in the down hill mode you should get it checked like low fluid or something.

My car runs slow when going up hills


have a compression test carried out you may be having early signs of cylinder wear also check when last time fuel filter was changed as lack of fuel could also cause this under load

I cant get any power out of my car when i go up a hill and when i get it up to about 70 it will run good but then sputter but runs good around town


Fuel filters normally cause this kind of problem. Check the fuel filters. If it sputters when you accelerate hard this is the most common sign. If the filters are fine run a fuel system cleaner in the gas and then change your spark plugs.

Having a temperature question/problem. 2005 Jeep grand cherokee 5.7L Hemi 4x4 49,000 Miles. The temperature gauge plays around a lot. goes from the little bar before half temp. to the little bar after...


It sounds normal, but perhaps the radiator is a little small. Make sure the core is clean by blowing it out with compressed air (from the engine side) to clear out bugs and other debris. Make sure the overflow/reserve tank is at the proper level. Check the coolant level in the radiator when engine cold--it should be right at the top of the filler. These are all preventive, not a cure for anything.

I changed spark plugs and car still misfires and loses power when frist taking off and when going up hill it's a 97 mercury sable. what else could i do?


i bet your spark plug wires are bad. Arching is occuring (when the spark doesnt get to the plug) Probably because of old cracked wires

My 2000 montero sport has little or no power when driving up hill


First thing I'd do is replace the fuel filter. If the car runs fine on level ground or downhill but struggles uphill, it's usually because a clogged filter isn't allowing enough fuel through to satisfy the engine's demand for enough to keep you at speed going uphill. Try that out - it's an inexpensive part and is usually the cause of your symptoms.
