Count the shifts. It sounds like you are going into overdrive and staying there. Overdrive is too long legged to pull most hills unless you are really flying.. good luck

Probably time to get the injector pump rebuilt, it's dumping too much fuel into the engine. Or, something is clogging the airway. (sound deadening foam, don't laugh, it happened on my Volvo turbo)

Losing power in accelation


Fuel filter is probably clogging up (it's common), which restricts fuel flow and makes it hard to make the needed power for acceleration or other high-load situations like climbing hills. Change it and you'll probably be fine.

it sounds like a wire is bad/ shorting out. Put it in a dark garage open the hood have someone start it while you look under the hood if they give it a little fuel you will see an arc from the bad wire.

Missing and backfiring during acceleration and climbing hills.


Could be vapor lock in the fuel system. Next time it does this, stop and try removing the fuel filler cap... Hope this helps...;-)

Losing power/acceleration on hills


Change or clean the EGR valve and install a new catalytic converter.
This should take care of the problem.

Jetta will not accelerate up inclines.


good chance you have a clogged cat converter ...with engine running have someone rev engine and see how much flow you have out tail pipe. also if you hear the sound of something rattling inside exhaust that is another tell tale sign

Could need a tranny service. Be careful who you take it to. Special fluids and tools are required to do it. They could burn up the tranny if they do it wrong.
