Elevations of 3000 feet and 4000 feet are high??? Ha !
Try living at 6200 feet and regularly going over 8000 feet. I'd have to drive 100 miles or more to get below 4000 feet. . My '96 Olds LS with the Series 2 N/A engine handles all this fine with a minimum of hunting. On long pulls up passes I usually pull it down into 3rd, but I haven't experienced what Chris is experiencing. Something suggested in these posts must be causing the problem.
