I know this thread is old, but I thought I'd put my two cents in. If your car is carbureted chances are the reason your wagon won't idle is that you have a vacuum leak, simple as that. Check the black hoses underneath the air filter and make sure they're all plugged in, sometimes they pop off.

When was the last time you had a MAJOR tune up? Other than that, it could be as simple as adjusting the throttle.

It def sounds like a starter prob, if you have replaced the wires its more than likely the starter motor itself, also check the battery voltage

No power up hills


The engine has a compression problem.
Check if the engine is consuming water or coolant liquid.
If coolant liquid level is slowly going down as you drive then you have an head gasket problem, and that is the reason for loosing compression.

If not you will have to check caburetor settings or electronic fueling depending on the engine.
