Not getting any power to climb hills, and have already replaced drive belt. Engine runs fine and mowing is perfect just slow driving and no power to get uphill. Any help would be appreciated

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

SOURCE: Overheating

Having the radiator rodded is a good move. Retest. If it has an electric radiator fan check temp sensors. If the fan has a clutch it may need to be replaced if its slipping with the engine hot. Check bellts. Its likely a fan air flow issue if the engine overheats when the care is not moving or is moving slowly. If the engine overheats only with AC on that narrows it down. Write back if that's the case. Lots of things can cause this. Antifreeze and a good radiator cap discourages boiling. Pressure in the radiator raises the boiling point but it can't build up pressure if the cap is bad. Antifreeze also raises the boiling point. If actual boiling happens in the engine then steam builds up in critical places and drives the collant out of the block making the engine even hotter than it already is. Replace the cap. Check the antifreeze.

SOURCE: Missing and backfiring during acceleration and climbing hills.

Could be vapor lock in the fuel system. Next time it does this, stop and try removing the fuel filler cap... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: lack of power when climbing hills and slow to pick up speed

It sounds like your vehicle needs a major tune-up. Try putting in some fuel injector cleaner gas additive and a new air intake filter.

SOURCE: 92 Jeep Cherokee losing power up hills / EVAP failure

Running out of power going up a hill is generally the fuel pump. Now days a plugged catalytic converter will do it also. The fuel evaporation test could be a bad gas cap or evaporation canister or hose somewhere. The exhaust manifold is a jeep thing, expansion and contraction, hot cold over and over. Have it welded or replaced.

Why does my 98 dodge caravan have trouble climbing hills?


A transmission issue would give vibration tremendously during uphill. If you're not getting the vibration, or burning smell of transmission fluid, suspect clogged catalytic converters.

I was driving up a hill and the car needed more power it would downshift and the rpm were really high and engine was loud. then I hit another hill and engine was loud at it jumped to 4,000 rpms and di


Sounds pretty normal for a 4 cylinder car, if that is what you have. It could also be considered to be normal for a 6 cylinder car. The cars with the smaller motors are designed to downshift in high load situations such as steep hill climbing. This is to compensate for lack of torque. It keeps the motor in it's power band so you have the power to climb the hill.

You seem to be running RICH ,that's the white smoke. It sounds like you may have a bad MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR. Is the check engine light on? Get some one with a scanner to check the code or codes. GOOD LUCK FIEND.

Hi, Check and/or replace fuel filter and air filter. If you starve the engine with air and fuel your car will behave like that too. Also fuel mileage will increase to your benefit. Check your tire pressure too. Good luck.

I seriously wonder why Jeep used that engine at all. We have several Jeeps here and the only one I hear nearly every week about power and hill climbing problems is the one with the 4cyl. (same year as yours).
Adding a taller tire is definitely not a plus. No idea what your gear ratio is but lets say you have 3:73's...with a tire two inches taller, the actual final ratio is around 3:23. Put the small engine up against it and you have about as much grade or hill climbing ability as a ride on mower!
There are three practical ways of getting back some performance. The first is simply putting a lower tire on it. Second would be to replace the stock camshaft with one with a better torque curve, perhaps adding headers and an aftermarket intake system as well. Third would be to change both gear sets to something in a 4 series (expensive). Then, you have two even more expensive options: Put a 4.0 engine and all that goes with it into the vehicle or start playing with turbocharging.(you really need to know what you're doing to do that right).
Your last option is regardless of how much you like your Jeep, sell it and get one with a 4,0 already installed!!!

I would perform a compression test on all cylinders if you've already changed your plugs and wires. This willtell u if u have ay mechanical problems with the engine. Also even tho you've changed your spark plugs and wires did you check your injectors or coil packs to ensure they're good. A problem with either will also cause misfires.

I have a 1997 jimmy and it cranks up fine but it starts bogging down when i am driving and when i try to climb a hill


You may have a clogged up egr valve. When the egr valve gets clogged up with carbon, the truck will run rough, surge stall, and be very anemic on power. Is the service engine soon(check engine) light on? I've dealt with this issue before, and those 4.3 v6's tend to get egr issues. Try this: when it bogs and runs rough, stop truck, open hood, and tap on egr valve base( where it bolts to engine) if rough running clears up, there's your problem. Egr valve is located on front of engine just to the rt of alternator bracket.

On long pull service engine light will flash then go off after hill is climbed runs fine will not store code


This is normally caused by the O2 sensor detecting a fluctuation in the readings beyond the set limits for your engine. Very normal especially when driving over hills.
