The problem exist when the car goes uphill regardless of fuel demand. this sounds more like a transmission problem, check ur fluid if necessary have changed, have ur transmission filter system checked.if it were in the fuel system u would expirence this problem anytime u put fuel demands on the motor. but as u state it happens when ur going uphill which is the transmission job

If a coil was bad, it would be missing or misfiring. Could be a clogged filter or a weak fuel pump. To check have the fuel pressure tested. If pressure is good, a tune-up might help.

Could be fuel filter. When you need more gas for power going up hill your engine can't get enough.

What are the signs of a bad fuel filter on a 2001 buick century


Hey Keith, you have all the signs of a blocked/restricted fuel filer. Will also struggle, especially going up hills if there is a missfire. Missfire will usually turn on engine light but sometimes not. If light is on and you have the system scanned it will tell you which cylinder to check. Mis fire codes usually plug,coil, or coil pack. I would try filter first if never changed.

Sound like not enough fuel. Before you start car put a rag over schrader valve( valve with plastic cap on it like a car tire) on fuel rail and push valve if fuel doesn't squirt out its a bad pump or filter

Loss of power when driving up hill


It depends: how steep are the hills? Assuming you have the standard 4-speed or 5-speed gearbox, it's likely that the tiny engine (built for economy, not for power) is simply not generating enough torque to pull the car up in high gear. Have you tried simply downshifting? If the problem truly is the engine losing power and not just lugging due to being in too high a gear on a steep grade, you should check your fuel pressure and you may also want to check the condition of the fuel pump and feeder lines inside the gas tank. A 20 year old car will probably have some disintegration of the feeder lines, they may even be partly broken off inside the tank resulting in poor fuel flow, or disintegrated rubber may be gumming up the strainer or the pump itself. Personally, I'd replace the fuel lines, fuel filter and if low pressure still exists, the fuel pump as well.

Losing power going over hill


well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.
