Losing power in accelation


Fuel filter is probably clogging up (it's common), which restricts fuel flow and makes it hard to make the needed power for acceleration or other high-load situations like climbing hills. Change it and you'll probably be fine.

it sounds like a wire is bad/ shorting out. Put it in a dark garage open the hood have someone start it while you look under the hood if they give it a little fuel you will see an arc from the bad wire.

Mazda 323 fuel injection1994 accelerator problem


Try changing the fuel filter. If it clogs up the engine won't get the fuel it needs to run at wide throttle openings, the engine will ****** the timing, and you'll lose power. With less throttle the filter can flow well enough for the engine to run properly.

2002 jetta TDI- I try to accelerate up a hill and no power


Count the shifts. It sounds like you are going into overdrive and staying there. Overdrive is too long legged to pull most hills unless you are really flying.. good luck

2005 diesel excursion when towing 8000lb trailer up a hill, seemed to lose complete power - no shifting, couldn't accelerate.


From your symtoms I would suspect a clogged fuel filter. It may seem to run okay without a load, but it requires a larger supply of fuel under load. Anything that restricts the flow of fuel will cause what you described.

Can't get speed go up hills


That's often the sign of a clogged fuel filter. Running on level ground or not trying to accelerate hard, enough fuel can get through for the engine to make the power you need. But when you try to punch it to accelerate quickly, or you try to go up a hill (basically anytime max power is needed), the car can't flow enough fuel to the engine to make that power, and the car seems to fall on its face. Change your fuel filter out and see if that helps.
