2000 Vauxhall Astra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 107000 miles

My car starts fine but when a drive not very far and up a hill it looses power then cuts out it then struggles to start again. It only starts again when its on flat ground even though it has a full tank of petrol. What is causing this? It does'nt do this all the time just sometimes.

Do you
have the same problem?

No

Start by replacing the fuel pump. It may be getting worn/weak
