SOURCE: losing power up one particular long hill

It sounds like a tranny problem. Without more info kinda hard to diagnose. The simplist thing to check is tranny fluid. If its low, going up a hill will pull fluid out of the torque converter. It could be the converter itself. It could possibly a fuel problem, but unlikely. Hope this helps. John...

SOURCE: losing power up one particular long hill

I was told to put the entire contents of those very small plastic bottles of injector cleaner into full tank of fuel, it was better after running in 5th gear at over 50 mph it got even better after some redx lead replacement, same type of bottle size...and even better after I changed the air filter, an easy cheap do it yourself job....I live in a country area in England where the car has to pull straight out and up a hill after going around a roundabout...total outlay £20
give ti a go , it can't harm the vehicle, and prob. needs doing anyway...esp. the air filter.

What is the function of L in corolla s gear


Hi, I have spent some time researching this, and have come to the following evaluation:
Assuming your Toyota Corolla S is an automatic:

P, R, N, D, these are all letters on your automatic transmission that you're probably familiar with. However, you might rarely, if at all, shift into "L" on the gear shift. So what does this letter stand for? And should you use it?
L stands for low gear. When your car is in drive, or D, the automatic transmission will shift through the gears as your speed increases. When your car is in low, or L, the transmission won't shift. Instead, it remains in a low gear, and less fuel is injected into the engine. This gives you less speed, but what you sacrifice in speed you make up for in engine torque. Basically, using low gear gives the engine more power.
Torque is useful when you're towing something with your automatic. Towing requires more torque, but if you tow in drive it puts more strain on your engine as the transmission cycles through the gears. Keeping it in low gear lets you keep the torque, which makes towing easier, and reduces the stress on your engine. Another reason you might use low gear is for driving up a hill in order to give your engine the power to get up the hill without over-stressing it. Low gear is also useful for driving in snow or on icy roads, because it reduces your speed and gives you more control over the vehicle.

I hope this helped, please feel free to write a testimonial if it did :)

2004 sierra 1500 crew cab won't go into park unless truck is slightly moving


Inside your automatic transmission is a cawl that engages a notched ring. If your transmission linkage has become bent for some reason, or the transmission has been moved (an accident, a damaged mount, etc.) then it might take some extra persuasion to get into park. Internal damage to the transmission is also plausible if the trans was abused in some way. That could include putting stress on the park mechanism, even as little as parking on a steep hill and relying on the transmission cawl instead of the parking brake. The vehicle needs to be put up on a lift to check for obvious linkage problems--otherwise it gets more serious.

it sounds like the fuel pump, the reason I say this...When you first start it up it runs great, after a while it has no power, if you climb a hill it will slow down and sounds like it is backfiring. Hope this helps

NO POWER / SHUDDER


Is it a standard or automatic transmission? If standard, your clutch may be slipping. While driving down a straight road, push the brake while still in gear and push the gas pedal as well. If the engine slows with the vehicle, the clutch isn't slipping. If the engine speeds up while the vehicle is slowing down, the clutch is slipping.
If it is an automatic, check the transmission fluid. You may be low and the transmission is slipping while under load, or the torque converter is slipping for the same reason. You may have a bad torque converter clutch switch, but the computer should have picked that up and made your "Check Engine" light come on.
These are the main reasons you would be losing power going up hills unless your engine isn't powerful enough to handle the larger tires on extreme hills. (It takes more power to turn a larger wheel going up hill since the vehile has to travel further for each revolution of a larger tire. Incidentally, have your speedometer checked. You will be going faster than what the speedo says since you put larger tires on.) Good Luck.
