WHAT CAUSE A MERCURY VILLAGER TO BOG GOING UP A HILL

There's many reasons this can happen, but start simple. Fuel pump may be failing. Usually under load they can not supply the fuel the engine is demanding. (Up hill acceleration is a classic example). change the fuel filter first, if that doesn't not correct the problem, test fuel system pressure. (:

2000 Ford Contour hesitates or stalls when turning left or on inclines at or below 1/2 tank of gas


Your best bet , take an have a fuel pressue an flow test done . If you think it's fuel related . I'm sure you probably don't have the tool's to do these tests. We test , not guess as to what could be the problem . If clogged fuel filter it wouldn't get any fuel an it wouldn't start an run at all .

Start first with the fuel filter since this is a cheap part that can be replaced easily. The symptoms that you are experiencing may be due to dirty fuel filter. If you encounter hard starting you may want to check the fuel pump if it still sending fuel consistently. Worse may be problems with the injectors.

No power when going up hill


when was the last time the truck had a tune up? plugs wires air filter fuel filter and if it has over 40,000 miles a new drivebelt put some STP gas treatment in the gas tank and if this helps the problem replace the fuel filter; the fuel pump is in the gas tank and the fuel filter is underneath the truck normally on the driverside just under the door or the passanger side just in front of the rear tire in the frame

My Truck is stalling out at stop and go situations.


check th fuel filter - does this happen when below 1/4 tank of gas? there is a filter in there too. a clogged filter will be worse at acceleration - if it is at 1/4 tank or less when this occurs - try filling up and see if that helps - when you drop below 1/4 tank you will **** up trash from the bottom of the tank! hope this helps
