    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.

Sedona Diesel engine losses power


You must have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, that is the first step in diagnosing this problem

KIa Mentor engine light


if the light came on it could be a fluid level warning. In most models today they don't have a light or gauge for the levels. I would check this first. you mention a hesitation, this could be as simple as changing the fuel filter or a faulty O2 sensor. Best bet is ti have a diagnostic scan done to find out if there is an active code present in your ECM.please rate this.....thanks
