Try changing fuel filter first. Also check for vacuum leaks, loose, cracked or broken vacuum lines.

Loosing power going uphills


By losing power do you mean its RPM is dropping a lot even when you apply more gas? When you get on the highway and try to speed up does it seem hesitant or sluggish as well? This may be do to bad vacuum lines or a restricted air intake. Check the usual suspects like the air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires and connectors. Check the power cables to the battery and alternator along with anything else. It may be that when your at an angle, a loose connection is falling back and causing the power loss. Me thinks this is the Spark plug wires, there may be a bad one in the bunch. While the car is running, get under the hood and wiggle the spark plug wires and if you get a bad one you will hear the car doing what it does when you go uphill. You can also check the vacuum lines as well.

Turns off when going on reverse and when turning the wheel without pressing on the gas pedal


I know this might sound dumb, but it has happened to a lot of people - make sure your floor mat (not even a corner of it) isn't on top of the accelerator pedal. Even the slightest weight can cause the pedal to accelerate enough to be noticeable.
Not dumb, it's a good answer. The floor mat can slip forward (and has) in two of our new vehicles when we were driving on the highway. It had worked its way off the anchors and slipped forward, causing the vehicles to accelerate. I put the gearshift in Neutral, pulled off the highway and that was the problem, both times. I don't think it was on top of the gas pedal, underneath, but still pressing or I guess, pulling the pedal down.

All of these are good answers, but if it's an automatic transmission, it might be normal provided the engine performance is ok. Auto trannies have a torque converter stall speed. I have a 96 Cadillac Fleetwood and it will move on its own.

Sometimes when I press the gas pedal the acceleration isn't as powerful.it feels sluggish and has a loss of power.i can push the pedal to the floor and it moves foward slowly.other times it will work...


Change air filter and TPS (throttle position sensor). It is subject to Physical wear. (1992, Age). A dirty air filter can put the MAF sensor out of range.

1995 nissan pickup bogs down,feels sluggish


if the car starts then there shouldn't be anything wrong with your fuel pump. fuel pumps either work or they don't. it sounds like you may be having a problem with your mass air flow sensor you can try cleaning it with an approved aerosol spray or it may need to be replaced. hope this helps.

It sounds like the idle speed actuator is part of the issue. I would also have the exaust inspected for a blocked catalytic converter.
