This could be caused by a low fuel pressure or poor plugs/wires. Do a fuel pressure test, if low replace filter, if still low replace pump. Also replace spark plugs and wires if you have not done so. If check engine light is on you can bring vehicle to local parts store to have them retrive trouble code. Thanks

There's a vacuum actuated unit bolted to the intake manifold called an Exhaust Recirculation Valve (EGR Valve). Replace the EGR and your vehicle will pull hills just like it should. That's your only problem.

VW 2013 Golf Automatic stays in 1st gear when driving uphill. Have to pull over after hill, stop, park and then go for engine to autocorrect. VW service center mechanic says this is how it's supposed to be...


There is no problem with the revs going to 3 or 6. The revs need to climb so you have enough power to climb the hill (if the car upshifts under heavy load it may stall). But are you saying that the only way you can get it to shift out of first is to turn off the car? if so, then that is obviously not supposed to happen. It should shift shortly after you start driving down hill.

Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally 2003 hesitates while driving


before anything i had the problem and this is the way i solved it ... the lancer has 2 ignition coils in 2 cylinders what you do is take the iginition coil out of the cylinder that is misfiring and change it to another cylinder and put the car on the odb reader again it should change location of misfire .. then that would tell you that its the ignition coil thats bad i ended up getting my coil at the dealer for $110 ebay has some aftermarket pairs for $100 so you can get 2 now for the price i paid for 1 that will solve the problem guaranteed owne d a lancer for 5 years know the ups and downs to them

Mitsubishi Lancer ES '02 - Rattling noise in 1st gear...


I think you might need to ask someone to throttle up the car and you look underneath to try locating the rattling noise. Don't forget that this model runs the exaust pipe in front of the motor so it might be an exaust rattle as well??
