My car is losing power going uphill, sputtering really bad and idles hard....any ideas on what the problem is?

Sound like it is flooding itself.
Possibly and air flow sensor telling the car it is running too lean and thus injecting more fuel and boggin you down.
Does it do this from a dead stop when you mash the throttle to the floor?

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving

A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.

Sputtering when accelerating

If it idles ok and only "sputters" under load it could be either an ignition or fuel problem. How long has it been since the fuel filter was changed? How about spark plugs and wires? Without the proper diagnostic equipment and the vehicle in front of me, these are the easiest things for the DIYer to tackle with the fuel filter being the cheapest option.

Car sputtering

You probably need the carbureator cleaned and rebuilt. The transition from idle to midrange flow is clogged. The accelerator pump diaphragm is proobably weak and worn to the point of near failure. Hope this helps.
Thanks and please rate me.
