SOURCE: no power up hills

If you had a bad mass air sensor, it should register a fault code. Ditto for oxygen sensors. I'd change the fuel filter for sure, as well as spark plugs (make sure they're gapped correctly), and run a bottle of Seafoam through the gas tank. If that doesn't do it, change your cap, rotor, and spark wires (all told you're under $100 for everything).

SOURCE: I have a 1995 Honda Civic. When driving up hills

Check spark plugs and all related cables, fuel hoses, fuel filter (change if black but make sure lines and fuel tank are clean first), and air filter. If blank spots are experienced when power is lost completely then firing of spark plugs may be the issue. Possibly also related to insufficient fuel reaching combustion chamber. Available for more consulation after you do through the above recommended basic checks.

Van acts like the fuel filter is plugged, and losses power when going up hills

Do you have a fuel pump? If its bad or weak, you aren't getting enough gas to your engine. Has anyone thought of the filter in your gas tank?

1987 Dodge Raider started cutting out going up hill. At first it would just pull back and buck back and forth. It never had a problem on the flat. Now it has a problem on the flat too and completely stalls...

Fuel pressure from the fuel pump needs to be checked,it needs to be 4 to 7 pounds psi,also check the fuel filter,and the carburetor.Has the engine been tuned up,new plugs and plug wires ,and cap,and rotor?Check the vacuum advance ,or spark advance if it has this option.

My kia sedona acts like it is starving for fuel when going up a hill or when i accelerate now the fuel light is coming on and it jerks around when going up a hill what is this?

Try changing fuel filter first, if not done recently. If it has been done lately, have fuel pressure tested.
If changing filter doesn't cure it, have fuel pressure tested . Also wouldn't hurt to stop into big parts store chain like Autozone, or Pep Boys for free trouble code scan & see if any have been stored. Write any /all, down & get back to us if you get some.
