When going up a hill the transmission down shifts and the engine speed goes up. Why do you think this is abnormal?

I lose power when I go up hill. It never did that before

If power is down you should do a tuneup. If the power is really bad and the engine bogs down when you step on the gas it could be a bad catalytic converter.

My Cadillac did this when cold and going uphill, it was very low on transmission fluid.
