Question about 1995 Chevrolet Corsica

!993 Corsica 6 cyl- Clunky noise on hills

My 1993 Corsica makes a clunky noise when I am accelerating while going up a hill. I tsounds like it is either having a hard time going into a higher gear and/or it is not getting enough gas and the engine cuts out for a second or so. I can't tell where the noise is coming from but it shakes the whole car and you would think something just came loose. It only does this on hills and it only happens briefly and then it continues on just fine. What should I have checked? Anyone have anything similar happen to their Corsica? Thanks,Chris

1996 Altima rpm's jumped up while going up hill and it has a grinding sound in passenger front

it probably downshifted (because you were going up hill) and then you'd been pushing it to hard (crazy fast acceleration) and you jacked up your tranny. See a professional
