Is it a manual transmission? No specific gear to be in, just keep the RPMS up. Try downshifting if you are going to slow.

Then you have an automatic. If the car goes too slow up hill, push on the accelerator more to have the transmission downshift, should d be automatic. If it doesn't, it might be time to have the car look at by a mechanic, there might be something else going on. Transmission, engine issue, etc. Any other drivability issues?

How did you get a Driver's License without knowing the difference between an automatic and manual transmission?
