Could be bad catalytic converter . But it you see smoke coming out exhaust could be a blown head gasket.check water level in radiator .and look at your motor oil if both or one looks milky or muddy .you'll have a blown head gasket for sure.

YOU'RE GONNA HATE THIS BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A FUEL ISSUE. HOWEVER HERE'S THE CATCH.....THE FURL FILTER IS IN THE GAS TANK CONNECTED TO THE FUEL PUMP. YOU HAVE TO DROP THE TANK OR TAKE THE BED OFF TO GET TO IT. AND YOU CAN ONLY GET THE NEW FILTER AT THE DEALER. THE LOCAL PARTS STORE DOESN'T CARRY THESE. BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT NAPA, THEY MIGHT. YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO CHECK FOR A VAC. LEAK AROUND THE THROTTLE BODY. LASTLY WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID ANYTHING TO THE TRANS.? MIGHT WANT TO LOOK INTO THAT.

SOURCE: wont start has fuel and has spark

RC ralston
Your problem is a leak in the cpi pletium most likely the pressure line has a leak
had same problem with mine $45.00 PRESSURE LINE KIT AND $15.00 GASKET FOR PLETIUM and 2 hours labor problem sovled.
You can remove vortec cover and remove air regulator to look inside pletium. I had gas vapor on driver side . that is where fuel lines are. fuel regulator is on passenger side. turn key on and look in hole and see where fuel is spraying. taking pletium off you can again turn key on and make sure where fuel is coming from.

How do you correct fuel pressure on a 2003 Jeep Wrangler?


I don't think it's your fuel pump have you tried changing your plugs or doing a full tune up had someone that had similar problem changed plugs wires and cap and rotor and it runs great now even these newer cars need maintenance. Oh and the cleaners you are putting in your gas are just alcohol same thing that's 10% of your gas don't waste your money many studies have been done and have found them useless.

2002 hyundai accent has no power when going up hill and sounds like its going to give out. my car struggles past 60km but runs fine in city at slower speed. I replaced spark plugs, spark plug wires,...


Park in shade, remove plugs but leave on the wires. Set plug threads against engine block for a ground (no bare hands) and have someone crank it over. If the spark is good you'll see it easily, and you have a probable fuel issue. Low power on an older car w new wires is almost always fueling related. (Mileage?) Fuel or air filter first things to check.

Xf falcon ute dies driving up hill


have had a few of these in with carb faults but were 2 barrel type.basic checks first,is pcv valve hose under carb not split(runs to valve cover or oil cap on this model?).try driving without airfilter element for test,have had one in that looked clean but had a fine mist of oil on it that blocked and caused air starve and stall on power.Did both problems start at same time? or maybe you are chasing 2 probs.being a ute.I have had probs with rusting petrol tanks and blocked fuel filters

When I go up a steep hill, carbon built-up blows out bad from my exhaust


There are a number of things that can cause this condition. First, be sure the engine is properly tuned-up. Have the spark plug and plug wires been replaced? Distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter and oxygen sensor? Then scan PCM (computer) for fault codes. This will tell you if any engine control components have failed. Also check for vacuum leaks or bad vacuum hoses.

Loss of power


Do you know how check if every cilinder is working? with the engine in idle, go to the distribuitor cap and carefully unplug one at the time, every cilinder spark plug wire,in the cilinder you dont see a diference in rpm variation, that cilinder is not working, replace spark plug, if you see spark jumping fron the distribuitor cap torch the spark plug wire, another cause to a cilinder fail could be a loss of compression in one or more cilinder
