I have a 1992 toyota pickup.the check engine light will come on and when i press the gas pedal it loses power and spits and sputters and cant make it up a hill,when the weather is cold it doesnt do this...


The check engine light is coming on to letyou know that the engine control computer has stored a fault code that will lead you to the problem and ultimately, the fix - providing it is properly diagnosed. Replacing parts without properly diagnosing the engine control system can be EXTREMELY expensive!
From the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like you may have a problem with an engine coolant temperature sensor.... But I would still have this properly diagnosed before running out and buying a new sensor.

I have trouble starting my van when its is cold. after that its fine. the colder it is the longer it takes to start.


Not an unusual problem.....

Most important- tune-up! Make sure your plugs, distributor cap and rotor (if so equipped), air and fuel filter are OK and have been changed (at minimum) according to your owner's guide.

If your vehicle cranks over slow when cold-starting, consider a new battery. In cold weather, batteries lose efficiency, and older batteries lose more power than new ones.

Next... Gas - the fuel in cold weather states has a formula change in winter months to lower emissions- sometimes going to the next higher grade of fuel (example: from regular to mid-grade) helps.

If you have a garage, keeping the vehicle inside makes a huge difference with cold weather starting.

Keep your fuel tank full. Running the tank down and leaving it near empty most of the time allows condensation, which will result in getting water in your fuel, leading to hard starts and poor performance, and the increased risk of "rusting through" which will cause a leaky fuel tank.

I changed spark plugs and car still misfires and loses power when frist taking off and when going up hill it's a 97 mercury sable. what else could i do?


i bet your spark plug wires are bad. Arching is occuring (when the spark doesnt get to the plug) Probably because of old cracked wires

Mitsubishi Galant losing power


firstly, is this a Gdi engine? if the engine revs ok when on park and neutral, but loses power when on a gear while driving, most likely your GDi pump is malfunctioning. i experienced this problem twice already and the pump was the problem on both occasions. the car works fine and malfunctions sometimes until the pump stops working and the car can hardly drive and then it stops starting altogether. the pump is fairly easy to replace.

Losing power up one particular long hill


It sounds like a tranny problem. Without more info kinda hard to diagnose. The simplist thing to check is tranny fluid. If its low, going up a hill will pull fluid out of the torque converter. It could be the converter itself. It could possibly a fuel problem, but unlikely. Hope this helps. John...

do you plug it in at night and in cold weather? Sounds like a fuel problem. Check your fuel filter and add conditioner to your fuel. Hope this helps.
