It sounds like the engine timing is not advancing you need to have a diagnostic machine wired to it to see what it is doing. it might be something as simple as bad gas.
Good luck

When climbing hills and the transmission shifts down the service engine light flashes on and off. I also start to lose power as I'm climbing the hill. Whats causing this?


You did not post the year make and model BUT you should not drive the vehicle because when the check engine light flashes, you can cause damage to your engine. You need to get an OBD reader from a chain autoparts store and see what codes are present.

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.

I was driving up a hill and the car needed more power it would downshift and the rpm were really high and engine was loud. then I hit another hill and engine was loud at it jumped to 4,000 rpms and di


Sounds pretty normal for a 4 cylinder car, if that is what you have. It could also be considered to be normal for a 6 cylinder car. The cars with the smaller motors are designed to downshift in high load situations such as steep hill climbing. This is to compensate for lack of torque. It keeps the motor in it's power band so you have the power to climb the hill.

Coil pack should in the front top of motor, with engine running remove one spark plug wire at a time from coil pack ( careful not to get shock ) they should all have spark, if one don't replace coil pack.

On long pull service engine light will flash then go off after hill is climbed runs fine will not store code


This is normally caused by the O2 sensor detecting a fluctuation in the readings beyond the set limits for your engine. Very normal especially when driving over hills.
