Start from scratch.. find out if you are missing fuel.. or.. spark. once you find that out repair that system.. Post a comment and let me know what you find, Could be something as simple as a clogged fuel filter... or... Something as bad as a computer..

Van acts like the fuel filter is plugged, and losses power when going up hills


Do you have a fuel pump? If its bad or weak, you aren't getting enough gas to your engine. Has anyone thought of the filter in your gas tank?

Are all the vacuum hoses tight and ignition checked out ok. There is a circuit broken somewhere. Have you experienced any problems when turning the key and nothing happening.

I have a 99 regal 3.8 supercharged car starts then dies. it loosing power to the fuel pump. have replaced fuel pump and ignition switch because i thought there was a prob with security system.i am realy...


It does sound like you have a passkey (security) issue. If the BCM does not recognize the key cylinder code the BCM will send a comand to the PCM to shut down the fuel system.
When you say you replace the "ignition switch", was it the switch or the tumbler.
If the tumbler was replaced you will have to relearn the key code.
Let me know if the key tumbler was replaced and I will tell you how to relearn the key code.
Regards.

Thought the fuel pump was bad, engine died but after hitting tank with mallet it started up and ran. replace fuel filter. started and ran a few min then died wouldnt start up. replace fuel relay still wont...


If you hit the tank and it ran? The fuel pump is bad. By striking the tank you jarred the pump, causing what mechanics call "The last ride" Peice of sound advise, Replace with ac delco pump. The zone pumps go out usaly within months if not days

No power, hard starts


Have you replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs and wires? A plugged fuel filter will cause a fuel pump to go bad because it works harder to pump. It also may cause less pressure. Plugs, wires cap and rotor will cause lack of power and fail you on a load if they haven't been replaced for a while.
