My car loses power on steep hills and can't go up hill. What could be the problem?
My car has 240000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there, thanks for your question. I’d be happy to help.
This may be related to many possible problems. If your car has any check engine lights on I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home or office to diagnose the issue with a scanning tool which will help to pinpoint what specifically may be causing this. This may be a lack of proper air/fuel flow which is monitored by a couple of different sensors. This may also be caused by a clogged catalytic converter which can cause a car to run poorly or sluggish. Other than that, a loss of power inspection can also be performed. Hope this helps and best of luck!
