I have a 2000 Pontiac sunfire and the overdrive don't work going up hills?

Check the kick down cable from the throttle body to the transmission. Your problem is most likely the OD doesn't go off. Sluggish going uphill.

Car wont accelerate when going up hills and sometimes when depressing accelerator the car wont respond,its sluggish,Any ideas on what is causing this sluggishness?

May be a clogged catalytic converter, that will cause the exact problem. Also a throttle position sensor may cause this but will most likely set an engine code. If the check engine light is lit you should have the car scanned for codes. Scan it for codes even if it's not lit as it may have stored codes in history. Hope this helps.

94 buick century whenever it goes up a hill will run sluggish. When coming to a stop, will also run sluggish. Otherwise it runs well in park or at higher speeds.It happens all the time...when stopping for...

This could be a problem with your plugs or plug wires, throttle position sensor. Did you just put some new tires on? When you put tires/wheels on that are bigger than was originally on there then it can rob power from the engine. Another thing that I would check would be for vacuum leaks. Hook a vacuum gauge up to a vacuum port on the engine and read the gauge. That will give you a better idea about what is really going on vacuumwise. Hope this helps.

Trans shifts hard somtimes but not all the time not predictable

Have the vehicle scanned. If you have a code for Maximum Adapt/Long shift, replace the EPC pressure control solenoid. This is a real common failure on the 4t65e transmission.
