      A cousin of mine has an XLT, unsure of the engine size, prob one of the 6's but when shes backing it out of her driveway it dies flat out. Also theres some hesitation when going up hills,I haven't had a chance to look at it yet but what could be some of the causes of this?

      Any number of things could be causing her difficulties.

      Is the CEL illuminated? If so, pull the codes and post them here; someone will help you.

      Good luck .....

      Nope unfortunatly (sp?) it isn't it only has 30K or something close to it on it. I was guessing fuel related.

      well with mine, it was a number of things, i also had a hesitation with no CEL, now i have the SOHC, i replaced IAC valve and i cleaned the MAF, also pull the battery while doing these. that seemed to fix my problem right up, then i ended up changing 2 O2 sensors because of how bad it was running from a CEL light.
