Clutch itself worn and pressure plate. Ideally have the whole lot replaced. If issues after that ....any smoke from rear of vehicle? Is the compression on all cylinders ok? No oil leaks around the head?

When your van is going slow up a hill, is the engine racing? If it is racing, then the clutch disk (manual transmission) may be going bad or your clutch disk pack (automatic transmission) may be failing. Slippage of the clutch/clutch pack would not allow the motor's full power to be applied to the drivetrain under heavier loads, such as up hills.

If no slippage is detectable, then a weak fuel pump or clogged fuel filter may be the culprit. If engine is running rough besides, then a tune up or further diagnostics may be in order.

Power loss in range rover p38 4.6 lt when going up hill

the p38 is a bit sluggish and slow on long steep hills, really not geared for performance but more as a piece of heavy equipment. strong horsepower wise very formidable powertrain but you're not going to have that get up and go that many drivers look for. couple quick suggestions you may want to check your plugs and wires a common weak spot in the ignition system, and i might suggest also running i can of seafoam through your engine. you deposit in your gas tank runs through with the half a tank of gas. i'm not a big advocate of fuel additives or octane boosters but in the case of seafoam it's definitely a worthwhile and proven product. don't forget also your sport mode button down next to your shift lever push that button down and it keeps your transmission from overdrive so you can accelerate into freeway traffic and climb hills without your transmission shifting

I have a toyota 1994 hiace van, automatic transmission. it becomes slow even on a slight hill road and i need to accelerate more, is it normal or is there any problem with it? all the gears are well c

Typical of a heavy van that is underpowered. I hear review after review about how weak this thing is going up inclines. I do hear that the motor is virtually bulletproof tho. Enjoy your van, don't expect to fly up hills, but expect to get over 500,000 miles on your motor if you do only the minimium maintence.

My Mercury Villiger's been over heating, it just started im going to replace the thermostat, but when going up hill the van jerks as if it wants to die down on me. When i say jerks i mean shakes really bad...

The jerking could be the EGR valve--as you have a
high vacuum signal under a load,meaning going up hill
and on the gas

The overheating issue could be effecting the ignition
and again cause misfires going up hill

When ever I have any problems I immediately stop
using the vehicle until ALL Problems are resolved

Remember your not working on a ford if I
recall, it is actually a nissan powertrain

Vauxhall mavano van lack of power in low gears pinking and white smoke going up hills


Its the EGR valve, take it off and clean it with some carb cleaner this often works rather than buying a new one, a new one is about £150 from vauxhall, its very common but do have a go at cleaning it, I got another 2 years out of mine on a astra van. EGR is exhaust gas recycler, its kinda like a little turbo, it reburns any unburnt fuel when they go wrong you loose about 70% of the total power of the van and hates climbing hills.

I would bet without any doubt that this is the fault

if you need any advice on removing it let me know, its a simple task.
