No pick up

When you give it gas it sputters and almost dies. Punch it to the floor and it still wont pick up speed. Not wanting to pull hills at all.

Have you changed the fuel filter lately. Sounds like you have a fuel restriction. You could have a clogged catalytic converter. When the car is in park rev the engine and listen. Does it sound like the exhaust is having a hard time getting out? Hope this helps.

Did you replace distributor cap and rotor? These are common on these engines. If you pull the cap, look at the contacts on the cap. You will probably find a lot of build up on them.
