Do you have an manual or automatic transmission.
If it is a automatic is it down shifting when you are going up hill? If the transmission does not go in to a lower gear the engine will die down and end up stalling.
A weak fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter could also cause your problem. So could a bad cat or timing advance.
So next time you start up hill start by putting it in a lower gear. If this works have your A.T. Checked out.
But if it does not work see if when your truck is running does exhaust smell like rotten eggs. that would be a plugged cat. If you a timing problem you could have black smoke coming out of exhaust.
On a 2003 if you have not changed the fuel filter lately it would not hurt to do so. If you have a check engine light on some of the parts stores will do a free engine check for you. Let me know if you need INFO on changing a part or how to find a part.

How dose a stall converter work in a ford with a c6 transmishion


The stall in a converter is when the internal parts of the converter lock and has the same rpm,s as the engine. Transferred to the transmission input shaft. Factory is 1000 to 1500 rpm stall. Put another way. You have a 1500 stall converter, when you floor the gas pedal and the rpm,s go to 1500 real fast, the rear tires will spin faster than the vehicle is going. Don't put a larger stall in a vehicle that isn't built to take the torque. Ie.. Upgraded engine, transmission and rear differential. Some thing will break.

Why does my car bog down and wont accelerate up a hill?


Usually a sign of a fuel problem, either too much or too little.
Too much could be several problems including a clogged air filter, too little could be a weak fuel pump or other issue.
A mechanic would check fuel pressure and air flow first.

Clutch pedal straight to floor


If you put the trans in neutral and depress the clutch pedal it should still start.
The clutch is hydraulic, so there should be something connecting the pedal to the master cyl and the slave cyl to the clutch disk.

Wife was driving truck up a hill when it suddenly stalled out. she finally got the truck back down the hill. Now it will not idle properly, and stalls out if put into gear( R or 1st). Is this a carburator...


Depending on youre mechanical ability you can spend 20 bucks for a rebuild kit on your carburator.

There tends to be many different potential issues with youre description of the problem. My best advice for you at this time, would be get the carburator re-built and check youre fuel pump/fuel filter.

But you can always go to youre local shop and get a free estimate.
