Feels like a miss in motor when starting up an incline

After driving for a while car acts like it is skipping when coming to a hill- if let off gas and push again it clears up while going up hill- only does it when going up incline even slight on-doesn't set codes like an intermittent miss in engine- any suggestions would be appreciated

My gas gauge will show 1/2 tank and computer will show 98 miles left. When I pull into my girlfriends driveway facing car down incline, feel gas moving in tank, when I pull out, tank show 3/4 full and 150...

OK I HAVE THE ANSWER. The fuel pump needs to have an adequate gas supply to start up. When low, or on a steep angle, and especially when BOTH conditions occur, the pump is no longer submerged. A check valve is intended to retain gas at the pump in that case, but over time it leaks. So actually, there are THREE things that must happen -- park on a hill, be low on gas, and leave it there for a long time. The fuel drains out, and no worky. The check valve cannot be easily replaced by itself - it comes wiht the pump as an assembly. Two fixes -- if the check valve is old enough to leak, the pump is old too. Replace them both. Or, just avoid the problem -- the pump could have years left. I had my pump checked, and it does appear to have years left, so now that I know the problem, it hasn't happened again. THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER.

My car 1949 buick lesabre is pulseaging while diving it.

Your light is on because it has set some diagnostic codes in the ecm. What are the codes? Get someone to find out what they are and we can go from here. Was any other work done on this car like pcv change or something else?

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating

Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?

Engine seems to be missing

it sounds right, it is called a light load miss. it occurs mostly at 45-50 mph on slight incline and it feels like a bucking or hesitation. It commonly ocurs when there is carbon tracking on a spark plug porcelin (sp) . note . if the porcelin has carbon tracking so does the plug wire boot. the spark will travel through the carbon track in teh boot after plug replacement causing premature failure of the plug. it is a good idea to replace plugs and wires if this is the cause of your miss.
