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?

First take EGR Valve off and clean it with a wire brush and a non-chlronated brake cleaner.If it still runs bad check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on engine off if not within specs replace fuel pump.

My Van starts to cut out after it gets warmed up or going up a hill, like it is starving for gas

You may try a new air filter and perhaps have your intake cleaned. Now is it "jerking" on you? Perhaps at a stop light when the brake is applied. You may want to address the spark plug wires and plugs.

Silhouette load levelling compressor keeps coming on

you can pull the fuses, but it is hard wired so it might have relays that need to be pulled, or you can just fix it, and replace the air shocks/struts with regular shocks/struts

1998 Olds Silhouette Auto Trans & Speedometer Problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check the wiring/connectors to the speed sensor. The speed sensor is at the transmission would look like the image below.
Incidentally, the speed sensor not only sends signal to the speedometer, is signals are also used by the engine computer and the transmission control. This would partly explain all the other concerns.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
