HEY FELLAS, MY B2200 HAS GOT A PROBLEM, IF I AM SITTING ON A HILL NOT EVEN A STEEP HILL, I PRESS ON THE GAS AND THE ENGINES SHUTTERS, AND THERE IS NO POWER, THEN IT DIES. IT DOES'NT MATTER IF YOU ARE AT A STOP OR AT SPEED. I REPLACED THE EGR VALVE, NEW PLUGS AND WIRES, NEW FUEL PUMP AND FILTER, ALSO THE GAS GAUGE DOES'NT WORK, I DONT KNOW IF THATS CONTRIBUTING TO IT. THANKS SO MUCH!

Check the fuel pump pressure and do a backpressure test on the exhaust system to rule out a defective catalytic converter. You might also be experiencing a slipping clutch-

THANKS FOR THE ADVICE, ITS JUST A WEIRD SYMPTOM IT HAS PLENTY OF POWER ON FLAT GROUND, THEN WHEN YOU GET ON THE SLIGHTEST OF A HILL, THE MOTOR WILL SHUTTER AND THERE IS ZERO POWER, I DONT THINK IT IS A SLIPPING CLUTCH, BECAUSE WHEN THIS HAPPENS I PULL OVER AND PUSH IN THE CLUTCH AND IT STILL DOES IT AS I AM STOPPED. THEN YOU HAVE TO WAIT, A MINUTE OR SO, WHILE CONTINOUSLY PUMPING THE ACCLERATOR THEN IT STARTS TO COME OUT OF IT AND RUNS FINE.

A clogged catalytic converter will do that and it does a lot of wierd things that can give you a nightmare.
