Re: the engine cuts out on inclines
Lots of variables there.... just a quick fix in case it is water in the fuel... purchase a couple small bottles of gas line antifreeze.... it's alcohol and basically sucks up any water in the fuel.. add at least two after you have parked the car for the evening. see if there is any change the next day.
p.s. it could possibly be the beginning of the coil pack failing.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This sounds more like a misfire under load than a transmission issue. This is one of the most misdiagnosed problems we see on a regular basis. The fact that it is only noticeable while going up an incline leads me to believe you likely have worn out spark plugs, and/or a weak ignition coil.
While you do not have a check engine light on, this can happen when you have only a minor or very intermittent misfire. Once the misfire becomes worse or happens more often, the computer will turn on the light- or cause the light to flash indicating a serious misfire which could cause catalytic converter damage.
Try having your garage monitor their scan tool data for real time misfires while driving it under a load such as the incline you mentioned, or even while brake-torquing the engine (pushing the throttle slightly while the transmission is in gear and the wheels are chocked and brakes applies) This can help duplicate the conditions where you noticed the issue. Monitoring the misfire data can help them pinpoint which cylinder(s) is misfiring and swapping spark plugs or ignition coils between cylinders can determine which component is causing the issue.
Follow the top radiator hose to the engine block, at the end of this hose is the thermostat housing. remove this housing , then remove the old thermostat. Install the new thermostat be careful not to over tighten bolts. Note!! First make sure the car is cool. drain the coolant in a clean catch pan, you can reuse it if you keep it clean.
