Default 85 Camry looses power

My 4 cyl engine with 279,000kms seems to loose
power on slight inclines at highway speeds. Replaced fuel filter and it is
some what better.

Any ideas?

Dave

How is the compression?
Have you changed oil lately? spark plugs? air filter?
Check the engine timing.

There are a lot of things that might cause that, and from my point of view 4 Cyl engines do not last very long.

279k km (173K miles) is a fair number of miles. So long as the
compression is up within spec and there is not a LOT of blowby
exiting the crankcase when you remove the PCV valve (assuming it has
one), then check your normal tune-up items. Other things that will
affect power are a clogged catalyst, a lazy O2 sensor, a loose cam
belt, etc.
