1st start of the day is rough &wants to die, if it does won't start again for awhile unless push started. 1st Runs rough & wants to die for a few miles. When taking off after stopping on aslight incline little or no power in 1st, levels out when you get in 3rd & 4th gear can get up to over 60 mph but start up an incline it loses power and if very steep it won't make it to the top.
