Hi,

If I'm driving on freeway or up a long incline my car will go into a limp mode and the check engine light comes on.

Other than cleaning out the intake, is there another problem causing these symptoms? I've had the intake cleaned once before but didn't make much difference in performance and still goes into limp mode. It has done this since I bought it about 6 years ago.

You need to get the codes read. Auto parts stores will pull them for free. Get the codes read and post up the numbers (not the descriptions as those can often be incorrect).

mine would do the same thing until i changed the fuel filter and i ran two tanks of techron fuel cleaner. That stuff even fixed my gas gauge issues. But your issue could be completely different so you should get the codes read.
