This happens only when the bore and the piston worn out. you can easily fix up this issue by replacing the existed piston rings with the next bigger size piston ring.

Kia carnival V6 2.5lt 2002 loses power when driving uphill ,l had to replace with the new clutch but still the same,but on flat road have power


if you did not replace the clutch cable or clutch master cylinder then the problem of a slipping clutch will still be there
loosing power means that the engine performance is being restricted but by stating that the clutch was replaced indicates that it was slipping under load

Why do my car slow down going up hills.and go normal on straight roads


sounds to me it could be a plugged catalytic converter. the symptoms are runs good , no strain, or on the flats, then loses power with exertion, or long uphill to the point you think it's going to just quit on you. easy test is to unbolt the catalytic inlet, and give it a quick test run. sometimes you can tell by having someone race the engine while you monitor the exhaust to see if enough comes out of it. usually happens over 75,000 miles

run the fault codes for an exact diagnosis but from your description of the problem I would be looking at a failing cat converter as it may be blocking up the exhaust system

Why does my 94 Chevy truck lose power going uphill


Chances are good your fuel filter is clogged, not allowing enough fuel to the engine for the high demand it has when going uphill.

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer, that I think has ran low on gas.


If it ran out of gas you'll need to purge the air out of the fuel line. Chances are also good that you pulled some sediment off the tank bottom and clogged the filter. If that's the case you'll need to replace the filter.
