    Yes you are spot on how you have explained it. Was so hoping not the clutch as that's going to cost to get done. Anyone know roughly how much please.

    Driving the car with a worn clutch could cause further damage.......the price would be increased if there are other parts that need replacing, I would advise taking the vehicle to a clutch specialist or if you know of a reputable local garage to get checked out.

    I would guess £300 - £400, but phone a few garages to get a better idea.

What causes Soltice to rev up and down shift when climbing hill but loose speed


That is the way gears in cars work. When you go up hill, the car needs more gas, so you put your foot down, kick down comes into play and the gearbox chooses one gear lower, for more engine revs and lower speed you get more torque to climb the hill.

Get the car tuned up, you might have failing sensors or ignition problems causing a general loss of power that is needing kick down on hills.

GU diesel patrol overheating problems


if you are selecting lower gears on a stick shift... good... if the car is automatic you should leave the shifter in drive position going up hills or towing. use lower gears to go down hills only. check the cooling fans for proper operation. also... their is a product or additive you can get called "Water Wetter" add this to the coolant to help the cooling system work better. Also, the engine thermostadt may me malfunctioning.

My truck loses power going up hills


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.

Vauxhall mavano van lack of power in low gears pinking and white smoke going up hills


Hi

Its the EGR valve, take it off and clean it with some carb cleaner this often works rather than buying a new one, a new one is about £150 from vauxhall, its very common but do have a go at cleaning it, I got another 2 years out of mine on a astra van. EGR is exhaust gas recycler, its kinda like a little turbo, it reburns any unburnt fuel when they go wrong you loose about 70% of the total power of the van and hates climbing hills.

I would bet without any doubt that this is the fault

if you need any advice on removing it let me know, its a simple task.
Regards
Dan

Car looses power up a hill


How slight was the hill and how much weight did you have in your car? When you got power back was it because you were no longer on the hill or were you going downhill?
You may just need to drop down a gear to get the power back, if you have a heavy car even slight hills can cause it to lose power especially if your in top gear. You have a "sports transmission" option (I'm pretty sure it's on all the DSG transmissions) you just need to move it across to the +/- bit and move the stick to the - to go down a gear. Otherwise you'd have to wait until your auto decides it's lost enough revs to go down a gear. Which is why I hate autos.
Otherwise it could be bad fuel or something wrong with the turbo.
