Same thing here!!!!

Not all the time but every so often it sputters going up hill . Once the check engine light came on. I went to put gas in it and when I went to start it it would not turn over. I took off the gas cap and waited a min. put it back on and tightened it and it started right up....Vapor lock maybe?

Nope... vapor lock has been eliminated for some time due to the advent of fuel injection at 40 to 50 lbs.... The problem still could be the fuel pump.. you need to have it diagnosed by a professional technician - then you'll know for sure.

Usually a sputter will occur under load conditions like going up hill from a lack of fuel. Start by changing the fuel filter.

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

sounds like one of two things, first things first make sure your car has gas in it sometimes the gage can be off and show gas in it when there is very little, if the car is parked on a hill that could also be letting the gas flow away from the fuel pump also causing the car to sputter, If it has gas then your fuel pump is out and will need replaced. hope this helped

Engine Clugs and Sputter while driving up a hill

Check the fuel filter to see if it is plugged.
Remove the fuel filter, and blow air through it in the normal direction of fuel flow. You should be able to blow through it very easily. If it feels restricted, try blowing through it the opposite way, and if there is a lot of dirt coming out, you have found a common cause of this problem. Hope this helps.
