Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

In some cases this can be an issue with poor coolant flow in the engine.When going uphill the engine is under load which causes more heat to build up and if there is a slight restriction in the engine cooling system or radiator this will cause this here.The coolant system will need flushed completely to free up and remove any debris from it as well as the radiator checked for proper flow to see if it needs replaced.Also check the air flow through the radiator to see if any air flow issues are found like bent radiator finis or debris in front of it needing removed.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
