99 rav4 driving uphill slow

I was going uphill on the highway. I was going 75mph on the flat ground. but going uphill my speed drop to 60mph, even though I step on the gas pedal as hard as I can. Every car was passing me. I smell something strange(some chemical or some mechanical) going uphill but I don't know if it was my car or someone else. Anything wrong was my RAV4? It is 4WD RAV4. automatic transmission, 125K mileage.

In your vehicle owner's manual it should list regular maintenance depending on the miles driven. Have you had this maintenance done by your dealer?

My vehicles get up those hills much better when I perform the regular suggested maintenance on them.
