First things first, how long has it been since its had a tune up, are you using Ngk plugs and wires, is the check engine light on, is your gas mileage going down or up.

Welcome to the USMB.


As mentioned, when was the last time a tune-up or engine inspection/check has been done.  The problem could be something as simple as it being low on coolant, to the fans not working, or even a head gasket issue.


Does the car run ok when on level ground?


I'm going to move your thread to the New forum where it will get a little more traffic.
