What causes Soltice to rev up and down shift when climbing hill but loose speed


That is the way gears in cars work. When you go up hill, the car needs more gas, so you put your foot down, kick down comes into play and the gearbox chooses one gear lower, for more engine revs and lower speed you get more torque to climb the hill.

Get the car tuned up, you might have failing sensors or ignition problems causing a general loss of power that is needing kick down on hills.

Hi. my 1994 subaru legacy wont '' climb reasonably long hills.'' once revs die a little it should change down a gear( auto) bu t this thing just dies down to about 60 kmh.


If it won't downshift when you press the pedal to the floor then you have faulty electronics in the transaxle control system.

My vr6 wont start after changing the engine


There are a fair few things it could be after such a major job......but it sounds like the immobilizer is being activated as the engine control unit you have fitted wont be adapted to the original immobilizer control unit.i am pretty sure on a car of your age it is just a case of erasing the learnt values of the engine control unit .a diagnostic machine will be required.I would recomend a main dealer but you can probally find someone with VAGCOM who can sort it.Cheers
