No it might not be a big problem .. it may be just clogging of your fuel lines...Just get your fuel lines checked first...If the problem is with fuel lines then the problem will be very simple..

If the fuel line is good then the cause is a faulty fuel pump is the sure case in your problem.. It will make you spend some amount of money...
if you can perform a scan on your car it might throw error codes if some part is faulty and you can replace the particular part.

Most autozone shop does the scanning for free...

Power loss in range rover p38 4.6 lt when going up hill

the p38 is a bit sluggish and slow on long steep hills, really not geared for performance but more as a piece of heavy equipment. strong horsepower wise very formidable powertrain but you're not going to have that get up and go that many drivers look for. couple quick suggestions you may want to check your plugs and wires a common weak spot in the ignition system, and i might suggest also running i can of seafoam through your engine. you deposit in your gas tank runs through with the half a tank of gas. i'm not a big advocate of fuel additives or octane boosters but in the case of seafoam it's definitely a worthwhile and proven product. don't forget also your sport mode button down next to your shift lever push that button down and it keeps your transmission from overdrive so you can accelerate into freeway traffic and climb hills without your transmission shifting

I am having hesitation problems when trying to pick up speed. my car seems like it is dogging out unless i mash down on the gas pedal. could it be a pressure control solenoid? It only happens when i am...

Clean mass air flow sensor with a non-chlronated brake cleaner this should help if it does'nt then check fuel pressure it should be 48-55 psi with key on engine off.

2001 caddilac Deville intermittant stalling. rpm drops below 600 and stops usually at traffic light. no roughness prior.

sounds like an IAC motor. that stands for idle air control motor. it adjusts throttle to keep at steady speed. could possibly be throttle positioning sensor though. pay attention to see if it does it worse while mashing breaks because if EGR is stopped up it can cause symptoms similar too.
