    1986 cadillac Stalling up hills, need help ASAP

    I am about to buy a 1986 caddy deville in mint condition, it runs awesome. They said that it is because of the tranny it stalls up even the slightest hill, could it be? I don't know. Please help me out ASAP

    sounds like it's starving for fuel.

    yeah, i'd agree. if it shifts fine on a level surface, i can't see how that'd be the case. perhaps the tcc solenoid is sticking, so it loses power going up a hill and can't downshift.

    Mine is doing the same thing. It has stalled twice while going up the same hill so if it is a solenoid where is it installed and how hard is it to change?

    The tcc solenoid is found INSIDE the tranny...

    I would verify correct fuel pressure and vacuum first and check for codes too. It looks like this old thread never did get resolved.
