Is the check engine light on? check the codes it might be TPS throtal position sensor. I am assuming you have changed the air filter and fuel filter allready if not then start there

I have a 1992 chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 while driving it shifts in and out of overdrive

Not sure if this will help but my 92 Lesaber kept down shifting out of over drive when ever I went up a slight hill or when I stepped on the gas even a little bit. One mechanic said I had transmission trouble and I went to another mechanic for a second opinion. my second man said why don't you try something before you get into the tranny.
We changed the spark plugs and installed a new set of spark plug wires. Not only did it stop down shifting all the time my gas milage was a lot better. He said under work load the plugs were mis firing causing lack of power and down shifting.
Good luck.

Sounds like a weak fuel pump but i could be wrong in this case as this vehicle is known as a astra or vectra and the computer is bolted to the engine ,this causes no end of problems as the heat with time affects the electrical component values ?? causing problems like this ,best advice i can offer is to call the dealer

02 Santa Fe no power driving up a small hill it takes long to shift gear but when driving on a flat highway it runs and shift good pls help

Easy fix my friend. It's a bad EGR valve causing this. That's an Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve and part of emission control that nobody ever thinks about. It's bolted onto the head near the back and has a small vacuum line running to it. Replace it and you'll have all the power the engine will give not just on flats but on grades and hills also.

Sluggish when pressing gas pedal

My guess is a compression problem - which could be caused by something simple and cheap to fix or as serious as a new head gasket.
