92 Jeep Cherokee Losing Power on Hills

My jeep has been losing power going uphill if I let off gas or start off at low speed on hill. Then it will surge intermittently after that. Seems to be getting worse. I am worried it will stall and put me in a bad situation. My muffler is cracked, not sure if that is the problem. Can't find the fuel filter..already did a transmission flush seems ineffective. Tired of wasting money on mechanical work that doesn't solve the problem... any suggestions on where to start? thanks.

If fuel filter isn't on the frame near the l/r wheel it's on top of the fuel sending unit on the tank.

92 Jeep Cherokee losing power up hills / EVAP failure


Running out of power going up a hill is generally the fuel pump. Now days a plugged catalytic converter will do it also. The fuel evaporation test could be a bad gas cap or evaporation canister or hose somewhere. The exhaust manifold is a jeep thing, expansion and contraction, hot cold over and over. Have it welded or replaced.

Losing power when I accelorate.


Fuel filter is the main culprit when you lose power going uphill. Going level or downhill means that the engine doesn't have to work all that hard and doesn't demand much fuel, so a partially clogged filter can usually flow enough to allow the car to run smoothly. Going uphill requires signficantly more fuel, and if the filter is clogged up, it won't be able to flow enough fuel. This will bog the car down and cause you to lose speed. Change your fuel filter.
