Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix
When going up a hill at speed the RPM's will surge from 1800 to 2200 and the car starts to buck, but when you step on the gas the car will finally down shift. If you don't push down the gas the trans, won't downshift. the problem only happens when driving at low RPM's 1500.
I had the sam problem it was because my upper ignition coil was corroded. i replaced my coils and spark plugs and wires all at once and problem solved. if you don't have the cash for that you can try cleaning the connections but that's only a temp fix it will be doing the same thing agan within abot 2 months.

Other possible problem is that in your transmission has an electronic solinoid mated with your transmission valve body ... When this is starting to go , you can have shifting problems, engine missfires ( IE: Bucking , Sluggish , Poor acceleration ) . Proper way to diagnose would be with an auto diag. scan of your computer ...
