You don't say if its petrol or diesel you could try changing fuel filters d ifficult siarting and running problems are usually fuel or electrical but try filters first

I strongly suggest you have the catalytic converter checked.. It sounds like it is plugged and when under load would cause loss of power... Here is one way you can check for yourself if it is bad.... Duplicate problem in the evening hour (night Time) when you have duplicated problem(no power) pull over and with vehicle still running put in park and look inder vehicle if catalytic converter is visibly glowing thats your problem....Good Luck

SOURCE: Losing power going over hill
well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.

sounds like a clogged fuel filter. you need to have the engine pressure checked for leaks, you can rent the pressure checker at autozone, it connects to ur radiator and u pump pressure into the cooling system if u find water leaking around the head u know u have a blown head gasket. if ok then check the cylinder compression should beable to rent this also. it screws into the spark plug holes has a gauge on it. alternator problem w/ the light is probaly you need to tighten the belt.hope this helps!!!

Testimonial: "thanks very much. i'll check that out."
SOURCE: '91 Toyota Land Cruiser (automatic transmission) sometimes drives completely fine, and other times while driving feels like it loses the power to accelerate no matter how hard you press the gas.
Can you tell if the transmission comes out of overdrive or downshifts when the speed drops ?
