I have a 2001 2.4l oldsmobile alero it was running fine. Then all of a sudden going up a hill the car started to lose power. I just recently changed the plugs and coil, I put new ones in last night since the old ones was covered in carbon. It is using a unreal amount if fuel and it only runs decent at higher rpms.

    Your original post contained good facts about what you saw and what happened. That helped give clues to potential problems--over rich mixture due to carbon on plugs.
