Is the check engine light on ?
Could be a weak spark or low fuel pressure, among other things.

The Brakes locked when going down a hill


the condition you have experienced is called brake fade . It occurs when there is insufficient brake pad to adsorb the heat generated buy the changing of the kinetics energy (spinning) into heat energy by the friction of the brake pads on the disc rotors.. It gets to a point where the pads and discs will not take any more heat so when that happens it does not matter how hard you push the pedal there will be no brakes. To prevent this happening again fit new brake pads and fit new disc rotors. If you are going to be doing steep hill work then get a brake pad suitable for hard work. Talk to a brake shop specialist to get the best pads for the job. Another experience that you will have is when the brakes get hot the pedal goes to the floor. This comes from bad brake fluid and happens when the brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air and the boiling point of the fluid is lowered considerably. The oil boils and the water in the oil turns to steam and you get vapour lock in the system and you will loose brakes as you are compressing steam or air.. The fix for that is to ensure that you change your brake fluid every 12 months.

Car doesn't kick down gear going up hills


A/T
The modern A/T has 4shift methods.
Foot (passing) called detent TV kick down cable.
the shift lever.
the Vacuum modulator (load, = hills)
and tail shaft RPM (speed)
so seems like the MOD on the A/T is bad.

You have a gas pedal your suppose to use that to drive.cruise control is designed to be used at highway speeds for longtrips. Do not use in bad weather like rain or snow. Your using it for steep hills and may have other issues going on causing the power loss. May need a tuneup and check hoses under the hood for damage

Our 2002 crv starts to sputter going up hills,as if there is water in the gas. If the rpm is kept low ( under 2000) and the gas pedal is gently depressed it will keep going. If the gas pedal is depressed...


This can be Caused by Both the Fuel Pump and the Fuel Filter. If you have not Changed the Fuel Filter in a While, Try that First and see if it Helps Before going to the Fuel Pump. It is Easier and Cheaper that the Fuel Pump to Replace. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
