Default Boost and surge....

This only happens at around 30mph and 45mph. Say I'm cruising along at either of those speeds and approach an incline. I naturally step on the gas to maintain speed up the hill. As I do this, the transmission seems to stay locked up, RPM'* do not raise, boost starts to come on to about 3 or 4 psi. When approaching 4psi, the engine starts to surge a little, assuming from getting boost at low RPM'*. If I push the peddle to close to half throttle, it will downshift and the boost goes away..... Any ideas?

Your TCC lock up switch needs to be adjusted. The torque converter is going in and out of lock up. There is a write up on that in check info.

Thanks Dan, TC is staying locked. RPMS are not fluctuating. Engine feels as if it'* loading up. If I press on the brake while going up a slight hill, the TC unlocks than locks back up when I either let off the gas going up the hill or crest the hill. Also seems to be staying locked in down to about 40 MPH, I believe it should go in and come out at about 45mph?
