Grip...? I'm imagining the most beastly of 50cc's doing smoky burnouts while going up a hill.... Naw that's not right. If the back tire won't spin freely I'd check the brake tension or wheel bearing. On a 50cc the power is so low anyway that this may be the only problem you have.

    Hmm... Ok, this is a scooter right? if the engine accellerates but the wheel has no power, I'm thinking that your drive clutch is worn out. That would be worth checking.

What type vehicle, year and model. Sounds like the vehicle is in limp mode. Something is wrong and the computer may be limiting performance so nothing else go wrong. Did she throw a code, check engine light blinking?..

Gilera runner 125st acceleration problem

First check it is a 125 cc engine. And not a 50 with a 125 body and stickers on it. If it is the 125 then check the timing (ignition) as this will be controlled by a box full of electronics and if only one component fails it could give the same symptoms as you describe.

Ranger looses power up hill

I am assuming you have the 2.3 liter 4cylinder engine.. This is common in all rangers straight out of the factory with that motor. Your asking alot out of a 4 cylinder truck that also get good gas mileage. they just do not have the capacity to gain speed up a hill. There are a few solutions for you that you could try. If it is a 5 speed manual transmission try to speed up before the hill and when you start losing speed go to 4th gear. this is also good for using as a passing gear as im sure you have noticed you lack power when trying to rapidly accelerate at highway speed to pass. an aftermarket cold air intake combined with a less restrictive exuast will give you anywhere from 5-20 hp gain AND give you more MPG's

Or you can buy a light truck with a v6 or v8 in it. rangers can be equipped with v6 as can chevy s10's. dodge dakotas have the availability of small block v8. this is of course will cost you alot in gas (based on experience) I am a 10 yr mechanic and have owned 2- 4 cylinder rangers a 93 and a 94 my dakota which i still own is a 01

Shaking at low speed (25-30 mph)

low speed shakes indicates a wheel alignment problem
have the suspension and wheel bearings checked out by an accredited suspension shop
under acceleration it could be engine mounts cracked in the rubber being actuated by misfiring form a cylinder
run the fault codes as well
