    Park your car in the darkest place you have available, let it idle, open the hood and allow your eyes to adjust for a couple of minutes. Look for any sign of sparks near the ignition wiring where they don't belong. A GM car of ours of the same era needed new ignition wiring within 3 years of new.

1982 JEEP HESITATES WHILE DRIVING AND DIES


2 things. come to mind.
i check the distributor advance works to spec with my timing light (strobe)
if that is ok, its a carb issue.

carbs fail for many reasons, (mostly gummed up inside)
we clean them. that fixes them. (with a kit)
I only have this for symptoms, and is not good.
MAJOR HESITATION AND STALLING OCCURS
does the engine have full power up any hill wide open throttle
is the Hesitation only a short time then catches up.
The carb (not stated P/N or brand) has jets, the if gummed up
will cause lean running.
so will any power valve jet.
ever tune it up. new spark pats, rotor all the way to spark plugs.
bad spark , loves to fail under load, that is its , magic.
carb>
  1. low float bowl levels.
  2. low fuel pressure causing above,
  3. bad float valve , sticks closed and starts bowl of fuel, causing #1
  4. Gummed up jets.
  5. Gummed up emulsion tubes in carb body.
  6. Choke stuck on, causing flooding,
  7. Choke dead causing hard starts . (stuck open)
  8. power valve clogged.
  9. Highspeed accelerator pump bad, causing only sight hesitation.

my guess? based on 1 word "stall" its #1 to 3 or 6.
black spark plug tips would be #6

or if black sparks, the float valve is stuck open flooding engine and stalling.

we can go for days on carbs. but will not.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

My 2005 Pontiac Motnana pulls back seems to hesitate when going up hill or I stop on hill. I beive it is the transmission, it does not do it all the time it seems as it does it 2 to 3 times then stops and...


the problem could be related to the tune up of the engine.. when the vehicle is traveling uphill there is more load on the engine, so if the engine spark plugs arent up to par they will missfire causing the hesitation your feeling .. damp conditions could also contribute the the misfire condition .. i recommend having the tune up parts checked and replaced as necessary.

Losing power going over hill


well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.
