WONT ACCELERATE PAST A CERTAIN SPEED WHEN GOING UP HILL

2004 Volkswagen Golf • 40,000 miles

When accelerating I put my foot on the accelerator but the car didnt increase speed. It then seemed ok but has since done it again when going up a hill

Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note:If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing.
