doesnt loss power always but is doing it more often. almost seems like its about to die if going up a hill.

Does it have a rough idle and seem to clear up at higher rpm's? Check the compression in each cylinder. My 2.3 had a chipped valve in the #1 cylinder. It still ran, but the idle was rough and it lacked power. It got worse the more it ran because it caused the plugs to foul.
