Backfire and loses power
What could cause the 1989
Chevy Silverado to backfire
and loose power when
going up hills or when a load
is put on it. I have checked

changed plugs and wires,

I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. If your tbi fuel injection, 9--13 psi. Also, check fuel injector spray pattern, just make sure both injectors are spraying fuel. If this is a carbed engine fuel pressure is usually a little less. Is it backfiring out the exhaust or intake, can you tell? I don't know liter size of engine? I can't rule out other issues.
put some carb cleaner down the throttle
check the distributor and rotor for any pitted terminals
