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.

When i come too hill 13 suzuki swift looses power,


no year,stated, and no country stated.
google earth cant find hill 13. so......
is transmission slipping? is it and automatic trans.? not stick shift.

slip means , engine RPM rises fast, but car speed does not.
some think that is power loss and is not. it's just slipping.
slip is transmission problems.
ok its not slip.:
which engine?
1.0 L G10 (LP2) I3
1.0 L G10T (LS3) turbo I3
1.3 L G13A/BA (L72) 8V I4
1.3 L G13B/G13K 16V DOHC I4
1.5 L G15A 16V I4
1.6 L G16 16V I
970 cc F10A I4
1298 cc G13BA I4
1298 cc G13BB 16V EFi I4
1527 cc TUD5 diesel I4
1.3 L M13A I4 (petrol)
1.5 L M15A I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel)
so saying my engine acts odd , is useless with out knowing what engine is there.....see why?

ill then answer for generic engines. GAS or Petrol.
  1. never tuned up the engine in a decade, tops list.!
  2. bad fuel,
  3. weak spark or #1 caused.
  4. cam belt slipped do to no service, (or chain on cam)
  5. Low fuel pressure
  6. or too much fuel pressure ,floods or rich misfires.
  7. misfire. causes low power ., lots of causes. over 50, in fact.
  8. The CLuster Check engine light on? running?
  9. Scan the PCM yet to see if it has DTCs; errors to report?
there are steps or tests in each case.
why not get the car serviced. they will do those tests.

Burning smell, very hot and all 5 lug nuts loose on same wheel


Your brake caliper and/or brake hose is hanging up not allowing fluid pressure to release. Most likely your brake rotor is already warped from excessive heat also. Replace caliper(loaded or unloaded) and hose ,bleed brake system and you're good to go.

Ranger looses power up hill


I am assuming you have the 2.3 liter 4cylinder engine.. This is common in all rangers straight out of the factory with that motor. Your asking alot out of a 4 cylinder truck that also get good gas mileage. they just do not have the capacity to gain speed up a hill. There are a few solutions for you that you could try. If it is a 5 speed manual transmission try to speed up before the hill and when you start losing speed go to 4th gear. this is also good for using as a passing gear as im sure you have noticed you lack power when trying to rapidly accelerate at highway speed to pass. an aftermarket cold air intake combined with a less restrictive exuast will give you anywhere from 5-20 hp gain AND give you more MPG's

Or you can buy a light truck with a v6 or v8 in it. rangers can be equipped with v6 as can chevy s10's. dodge dakotas have the availability of small block v8. this is of course will cost you alot in gas (based on experience) I am a 10 yr mechanic and have owned 2- 4 cylinder rangers a 93 and a 94 my dakota which i still own is a 01

Transmission won't go into overdrive and looses speed going up hills . goes up hill about 25 mph no up and go


usually the trans in the santa fe doesent have too many issues,sounds like an eng. problem, my guess, poss. a plugged cat converter, or poss a throttle position sensor issue, i would take it to the guys who know the product, not pep boys or sears.

Loosing power at cruising speed


have you had the transmission flushed? it seems to be caught in a limbo. where the calibration of the speedo and the transmission are not compatable. Now as wierd as that seems it happens usally like when going up a hill if you have a manual trans. and cruise locked in. it cant hold that speed and moves to a different speed if you dont down shift. Or perhaps your cruise control cable is slipping. is it vacume over mechanical? pop the hood and make sure all your hoses to cruise control are tight and no leaks.

Power loss on 5.9l gas 1996 dodge ram Help


Have you checked your catalytic converter?  I had this problem with my '96 2500 5.9l on long hills and it was really sluggish on steep hills. I thought it might be the transmission not down shifting but it turned out to be the catalytic converter was clogged.
