Hello and Welcome -

My name is XXXXX XXXXX Im happy to help / advise you..

You need to determine if this is a clutch wear problem.

To do that - when you drive up the hills as you describe, if you can hear the engine revving - the engine speed going higher and higher - but the actual vehicle is not keeping pace with the speed of the engine - going up the hill - ie, its going slower and slower... then you have a clutch wear / worn out issue.

So try that if you haven't already and let me know how you get on or if you need anything more at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.
