Hi..
this may be due to the following reasons.

1.the signal which is given to the injection time unit may be intrepted. so when you give acceleration the signal is not reaching the unit so sluggish operation of the particular unit. so the amount of fule given for particular speed is reduced and power is lost.
2. the linkages may be weak so please check all linkages and set it in proper condition

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.

Spark Plugs


generally they play up under load like going uphill in top gear. Put some load on then try pulling away up hill in top gear, if smooth uptake then they are ok. Or remove and hv tested at auto electrican. cheers

Hi. Changing the coil first was a good move. Since it did not solve this illusive problem now change the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor and I believe your problem will be solved. Joe

My 2005 Pontiac Motnana pulls back seems to hesitate when going up hill or I stop on hill. I beive it is the transmission, it does not do it all the time it seems as it does it 2 to 3 times then stops and...


the problem could be related to the tune up of the engine.. when the vehicle is traveling uphill there is more load on the engine, so if the engine spark plugs arent up to par they will missfire causing the hesitation your feeling .. damp conditions could also contribute the the misfire condition .. i recommend having the tune up parts checked and replaced as necessary.
