Question about 1999 Mercury Villager
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Two things can cause this problem. I do suspect that you have fuel flooding. When you're uphill you tend to press the accelerator and while you floor it there's a lot of fuel coming in but can't be burned enough. The solution is to replace the spark plugs for it can be worn. Once the plugs are replaced you'll have a better fuel burning.
The other common cause is a faulty torque converter. The torque converter controls the shifting of the car. If the torque converter fails to shift you tend to press the accelerator and you'll surely have fuel flooding. Have the torque converter replaced too and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Technically it is a sealed unit that has an EVAP purge system to control Hydrocarbon emissions.
Does it always have air rushing in every time you take off the cap? Is there a check engine light on and are there any trouble codes stored in the computers memory indicating a fault?
