Are you geting a spark from the plugs.if not leave the fuel system alone.And concentrate on the coil and the crank sensor.

2002 Santa Fe 127174 miles. On hills car slows dwn, rpm is climbing, speed is droping. on steep hills from a dead stop rpm's are 4,000 speed is just below 20mph. have had the fluid flushed twice.


sounds like your transmission is going bad fast. get it checked asap to see if it can still be saved. aamco will take a look at it. if its completely bad, then getting a new transmission might be cheaper than getting the current one fixed so look into that!!

3002 Pt Cruiser GT - 53, 000 miles - first start of the day - went about 1/4 mile down hill, engine light came on. Had put gas in the day before thought maybe the gas cap was lose. Tightened gas cap, went...


It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

I have a 1998 plymouth voyager when going up hill it boggs out and wont go over 20 miles per hr.


Could be a clogged Exhaust Converter. I usually never replace any on my vehicles,even after 17 years. That said, they do fail for various reasons.

A bad EGR Valve would be a common parts failure on all vehicles, and high engine vacuum on a hill, would point that way, if it bucks, as well as slows down.

Then you have ignition problems. All vehicles experience those at some point in time, and a hill would put an electrical load on the system,especially on a hot day.

Iam going to assume the Trans doesn't slip or you see a flair or spike on the Tach, when it slows.

Check engine light and lost of power


This sounds a lot like a bad TDC (Top Dead Center) sensor. Of the many sensors on this model vehicle, the TDC sensor failure is common and is one of the few sensor failures that will disable your vehicle.

2002 kia spectra has hard time picking up speed


I had the same problem. I changed my fuel filter too.Your catalytic converter is clogged. I could put the pedal to the floor board and couldnt hardly pick up any speed. I could hardly make up a hill on the highway. Take it to a kia dealership and they will, they should replace it for free, they did mine and I didnt have a warranty. I think there is a warranty on that specific part. That's what it is though.
