First off what kind of car is it? 1. try putting it in a low gear. 2 check your transmission fluid level it could be low. Camaro z28 5 speed. When it is under load as the revs increase it looses power? Exhaust?

gravity. Going uphill is always harder thatn going along the flat.

There could be many reasons why a car will lack power when going up a hill. The car could need a tune up or the transmission maybe having problems.

Generally when we are going up hill because of the gravity pull, more power is needed. So when traveling uphill more power is needed than downhill.

Mine hesitated going up hills when I bought. Plugs and wires took care of the problem.

You are running out of fuel. As you are going up the hill, the fuel is sloshing around causing sudden fuel starvation to the engine.

User Avatar

hi, it could be your air flow meter / air flow sensor if it's a late model car same problem happened to me in my 96 landcruiser.

if the vehicle is running properly(regular maintanance, tune-ups etc..), you have to downshift on inclines if your vehicle is standard shift. if automatic, disengage overdrive while going up hills.

Because it is a Honda with a tiny motor.

If the power windows in a car are only going up an inch at a time, the motor may be going out. You need to take the car to get serviced before the windows completely stop working.

That would be your transmission Also do not forget to check your spark plug cables. I had an issue going up hills and it turned out to be the cables.

User Avatar

If it is an automatic transmission going uphill it will downshift to a lower gear for more torque.

User Avatar

Most likely you have an ignition misfire. Check ign coils, ign wires, spark plugs etc.

It loses power because going uphill is harder then going downhill therefore causing it to use more gas and then making it lose power bit by bit.

User Avatar

depending on what car it should cut out because the engine is being sapped of the power by the a.c and the gearbox stalls espicially up hills.

A late oil change will not cause of car to lose power. Oil is used to keep the engine components lubricated. The lose of power may be coming from the car running to lean. Take to the car to receive a diagnostics test.

I had this problem until I had the timing corrected. It is a very cheap and easy thing to do but best to get a proper service centre to do it. If the timing is slightly out the car will backfire and be sluggish when going up hills and acelerating.

Going up hills doesn't allow engine to "lug" and overheat Going down hills supplies engine braking for safety and will prevent brakes from fading and overheating

User Avatar

I have an 88 EFI truck and it loses speed (not necessarily power) going up hills because it is a manual transmission and it is geared low... and also if you are in higher altitude. Mountains ect..the electronic fuel injection may need to be redone.

User Avatar

I would start by going into your fuse panal, and unplugging the fuse for your ABS system. This should disable your traction control.

User Avatar

Have you checked to see if you are leaking any oil while you're traveling uphill? Loss of engine oil will cause your car to lose power, and eventually blow your engine if you don't replenish it. How much power are you losing? Every car will slow down when you're going up a hill and will require you to push harder on the gas to maintain the same speed. A bad knock sensor will cause very weak acceleration. This happened on two of my subarus. It is an easy fix and improves the situation immediately.

Lots of things. Not much gasoline could cause it because you would be using gravity to pull the gas to the back of the tank. Your engine might just not be strong enough to get your car up hills.
