New spark plugs, plug wires, and cap and rotor should help hondas go through them a lot. my 87 and 96 civic went through them frequently. cleaning or replacing the air filter may help too ita basically a tune-up. Theres a fuel treatment sold at auto part stores and even walmart called seafoam its a red and white can on sale you can find it for about 7 bucks try that too. She is old and im sure giving you all she can they are are not known for their speed and power but they last forever if you treat them right.

I have a 1995 Honda Civic. When driving up hills


Check spark plugs and all related cables, fuel hoses, fuel filter (change if black but make sure lines and fuel tank are clean first), and air filter. If blank spots are experienced when power is lost completely then firing of spark plugs may be the issue. Possibly also related to insufficient fuel reaching combustion chamber. Available for more consulation after you do through the above recommended basic checks.

When am driving in a hill the rpm of the carr go up and down


lack of power going up (or in) a hill could indicate you have a head gasket leak, or your trans has an issue w/downshifting. more clarification would help. how often does this problem occur? any noises associated with uphill driving? check trans fluid level and condition/color. check oil for the same. another suggestion is performing a compression test and compare your results with a repair manual specific to your ride haynes and chiltons are both good reference repair guides written for the non professional mechanic
