    Sounds like you have an internal transmission problem. This will take some testing by a competent shop to verify. Make sure fluid is full and does not smell burned.

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.

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

2000 Ford Taurus not getting gas


If your in gear (D) for example and you hit the gas, engine revs, but car doesn't speed up, it's a problem with your transmission, and the first thing you can do is have the fluid level checked, and add fluid if needed. If that's not the cure, take it to a transmission shop & have it diagnosed.

Loses power on steep grade


Sounds like you need a clutch replacement.

Try this. Go somplace where there are no cars, and no possibility of running into anything. Stop the car. Set the park brake. With the engine running, put the vehicle in 1st gear. Hold the foot brake pedal, and give it gas, and let out the clutch slowly.
If the engine does not stall real quick, the clutch disc is bad.
