Hi. When was the last time the fuel filter was replaced? And in general a full tune-up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have no ideal when it has been replaced, bought the car used. I just did sparks lugs and all that stuff.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

ok. first thing you would want to check or replace is the fuel filter. sounds as though you may be having low fuel pressure. you could have a weak pump as well. if the fuel filter is ok I would recommend having the fuel pressure checked when going up a long Hill.
