Happened to me. You need an injector for the tbi. one is bad the other is working which means the motor is only getting half the fuel it needs. it will still run poorly on one injector but when you try to go uphill it will have no power. These are getting very hard to find took me a week to find one several states away. Good luck!

Try replacing the cadillac converter and the mass airflow sensor if you have one.

high fuel consumption Petrus, sticking E brake, poor gas, tune up needed, lazy O2 sensor,
leaking injectors, driving habits, etc. all can cause more fuel consumption. Have it scanned to help determine cause.

What is wrong with my dodge neon when back fires and no power going up hills


You have a bad coil, most likely. Check the catalytic converter also at a shop. Possibly bad spark wire(s). Last but not likely, a prob with the PCM .

2001 DODGE 5.9L GAS RUNS POOR NO POWER


If your Dodge is a Ram and is consuming oil it could be a plenum gasket. They are known to go bad and cause oil consumption along with knocking sounds and lack of power when on throttle hard, towing or going up hills. This is due to vacuum leaks caused by the bad gasket. I think it runs about $300 to $500 to have dealer fix.

97 dakota 3.9 no pulling power


When you say going up a hill are you wide open throttle? Does the bucking occurs at 5300 RPM? If you are you have reached the fuel shut off limits before the transmission can shift,This happen if there is a high demand on the alternator, The solution for this is a redesign of the govenor pressure sensor on the transmission.But before you even decide this is a solution make sure the throttle valve cable is properly adjusted,(this is the downshift cable)

Have you checked your catalytic converter?  I had this problem with my '96 2500 5.9l on long hills and it was really sluggish on steep hills. I thought it might be the transmission not down shifting but it turned out to be the catalytic converter was clogged.
