    Changed Air Filter, still does the same. Try Plugs and wires next.

Sounds like weak spark or weak fuel pump. Easiest fix for spark is new plugs and wires. If you know they are good, then you must measure fuel pump pressure AND volume.

Check our air filter. Nine times out of ten it is something very minor .If you have not changed your air filter in a while, this could cause the loss of power going uphill. On flat ground the vehicle does not have to work as hard as uphill. If your air filter is dirty, this will hamper the carb from breathing properly, thus no power.
