Car loses power uphill

Asked by Apr 08, 2018 at 06:28 PM about the 1997 Volkswagen Golf

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Whenever I go uphill, my car loses power and
begins jerking  until it turns off, even though it is in
the first gear! However, if I press the clutch and the
gas at the same time, it might gain power. What
could it be? It is Golf Polo 1.0, made in 1997,
manual transmission.
