Your catalytic converter sounds like its clogged...When clogged it restricts exhaust and puts excessive back pressure on motor causing loss of power ,especially when engine is under load.(going up hill).ONE WAY TO SEE IF THIS IS THE PROBLEM IS TO LOOK UNDER VEHICLE WHEN PROBLEM OCCURS...tHE EXHAUST PIPE BEFORE THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER WILL BE GLOWING DUE TO RESTRICTION....

No power on exceleration smells like gas hs a hard time pulling hills 94 saturn sohc 1.9


Start by replacing the air filter and checking the operation of the fuel pressure regulator. Have the stored codes read out of your ECU, either by an auto parts store or a local mechanic, in order to ascertain a starting point for diagnosis.

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 press the gas down real fast and it unsticks but then when I come to the next light it does it again. If it's cold out dose it doesn't do it as much if at all. I heard it could be a throttle body sensor. Any advise?

It slows down going up hill otherwise


check 2 items first. 1. your fuel filter. if it hasnt been changed in a while, change it. 2. go drive it for about 15 minutes hard, come back and look under the vehicle at your exhaust and what youre looking for are red hot catalytic converters. red = replace.

Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill


Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.
