Engine is struggling to climb hills
Does anyone ever have a problem with their compass climbing hills? My 2008 Compass 2.0L seems to be having a hard time climbing hill. From cruising speed of 60mph entering a slope hill climb, the engine would rev down to 40mph slowly.. and if I want it to go back up to 50mph or even 60mph, I can feel the engine struggling and reving up to reach that point!
Is this normal?
This has been happening since 2010 and it wasn't until April 2012 on a hill climb in Utah that it started to light up the transmission-overheating indicator. I followed the recommended manual to sit tight and let it cool and everything else went back to normal.
I'm just curious as to what is wrong with the transmission.
