Why did it overheat going uphill?

You are probably low on coolant. The engine has to work a little harder going uphill.

First, is the check engine light on ?
If the vent is not working for the tank, the fuel system can have trouble pumping fuel from the tank.
I would check fuel pressure at idle and cruise speed. Also try running with the gas cap off.

My bighorn lotus 1994 3.2 petrol revs really high before it accelerates. also when i go uphill and put my foot flat the cat almost cuts out

the high revs on pulling away is a front clutch going on the gearbox which i assume is a automatic ,as for the lack of power going uphill could be anything from a dirty pick up gauze filter in the fuel tank which is collecting rust and muck when the tank tilts ,or even a plastic bag ,to a mass air flow sensor ,you will need to ask a local mechanic on this one ,but the gearbox overhaul?' might be cheaper to trade it in

2000 Chevy Trailblazer will not start when parked uphill. When it does run there are no problems when driving uphill. Engine turns over initially but immediately cuts out then just cranks with to no avail....

Solution was the Fuel Pump Relay. For this problem listen to the car as you turn the key forward just before cranking the engine. You SHOULD hear a buzz/hum that lasts for 2-3 seconds. This is the fuel pump relay priming. When the car was pointed uphill without a functioning relay there would be an air bubble in the line thus no turn over.

When it goes uphill it cuts out and dies but

There isn't enough gas in the float bowl to cover the jets when the carburburator is tipped. If it's been rebuilt recently the float wasn't set right or if it hasn't been rebuilt, it's probably time because sediment is starting to build up in there. Hope thishelps.

it sounds like a secondary ignition problem if it only skips under load it is probably plugs and or plug wires
