Question about Cars & Trucks
When I go up hills my truck loses power,my rpms go up but my speed does not
I take it that this has a manual gear box and clutch operation. If so the problem is that the clutch is slipping. Check that the clutch slave cylinder is fully releasing the clutch bearing ( faulty master cylinder). If all is ok then the clutch pressure plate is weak allowing the clutch plate to slip under load. In that case the fix is to remove the gear box and replace the clutch assembly with a new clutch kit.

SOURCE: car loses power when going
The first thing you need to check is fuel pressure. If you don't have a fuel pressure gauge you can buy one from a tool supplier, but the gauge may costs more than the diagnosis from a shop.
Another thing you may want to check is you catalytic convertor to make sure that it is not plugged.

In most cases it is the fuel filter. I don't know when it was changed before, but it should be changed at least every 8-10 k miles. Make sure you change the air filter too.
