I Allowed The Front Brakes To Be Changed, The Problem Is Still Occurring. My Car Has Less Than 30,000 Miles On It.

    I have 2008 Ford Escape. Each time I turn traction off and gun it up hill…looses total power. Air bag light has always came and gone off during operating. (Not sure it has anything to do with problem) very annoying.
    I’m parked at bottom
    Of hill. And walking up.
