Is there a check engine light? The most likely cause is your secondary ignition system components, plugs, wires, cap or rotor. An "old school" trick is to use a spray bottle with water and start spraying plug wires, cap rotor when running. Pay attention to the area you are spraying and notice if engine starts running rough. This will give you a pretty good idea where to check. This is a best guess without further information.

Why do my car slow down going up hills.and go normal on straight roads


sounds to me it could be a plugged catalytic converter. the symptoms are runs good , no strain, or on the flats, then loses power with exertion, or long uphill to the point you think it's going to just quit on you. easy test is to unbolt the catalytic inlet, and give it a quick test run. sometimes you can tell by having someone race the engine while you monitor the exhaust to see if enough comes out of it. usually happens over 75,000 miles

2000 mystique bucks when going up a hill seems like a tranny problem but there is no indication of tranny problem when on level road and when goosed it seems to be fine there is no indication of slipping...


As long as it downshifts when going up hill, then there is no strain on the engine. Some ideas, fuel filter ? As the car leans in the upward direction, it is possible that he filter has dirt in it, and then blocks. Just a long shot.

Surges aroung 1800 to 2000 RPM when maintaining speed up a hill


This is referred to as "trailer hitching" because it feels like a trailer bouncing around back there. Trailer hitching is usually caused by a vacuum leak, either internal or external. It could be a bad vacuum hose, a sticking EGR, and intake gasket, or any number of other locations.

I am having having trouble in WA finding if i can fit a Haymanreese hitch to my 2007 Elantra


I checked the Reese site, and there is one available #77167 Insta-Hitch 1 which is a class 1 rating, drawbar #3594. Keep in mind that your Elantra is limited to towing 750 lbs WITHOUT trailer brakes, and up to 1500 lbs WITH trailer brakes. The installation of the hitch claims to be 'no drilling' but the exhaust system must be lowered for installation (then returned to position), and some 'trimming' of the cars fascia must be done. Take into consideration the terrain you intend to drive through. If there will be a lot of hills, you will struggle to accelerate, and braking w/out trailer brakes on long hills will overheat and reduce your stopping ability. Remember to figure in weight of passengers, luggage, and anything you put in or on the trailer, car roof rack etc. Good luck, and safe travel to you. Curt

How to use overdrive button


Use it only on highways and you should wait until you are in 4th gear to turn it on. If used in a moutain area, it will put more strain on the transmission so make sure it is not on while going up hill.

Pulling boats


this all depend on where an how far you want to pull the boat. Also the terrain. A lot of hills ect. I would say a small boat no bigger than 16ft. make sure the traier is balanced only load on a concrete ramp. Try not to load on to steep of a ramp. Also try avoid a lot of hills the main difference on trucks and cars among other things is the transmission and the way its geared. Some transmitions even have thier own cooling sytem due to the fact that towing anything tens to put a lot of strain all transmissions.After a while check your tran fluid to make sure it isnt burning. Pull the stick and look at it. if its not the redish color and if it smells burnt i recomend discontinuing towing. Also look into uhual they sold me a hitch for an 85 300zx was perfect. It had all the specs with it.
