Rpm problem

I have a 95 mustang 3.8, when I go up hill and press the gas to go, the rpms go up to 1700 then, will the pedal pressed in the same amount as before, the rpms slowly go down to 1100 for some reason.... The belts are a little loose ( i think) and need replacing, could this be my problem???

Auto or 5 speed....if it's a 5 speed your clutch is cooked. If it's an auto you got real problems

Auto, what do you think it is? Cause I had the engine rebuilt by a professional, and no other problems?

That's a tranny issue. Torque converter maybe....I would get it looked at because if the torque converter is slipping that much it will generate alot of heat and heat kills auto trannys. With any luck a tranny guy will chime in here and help. I am just giving you my best guess

from what you described, it sounds like a a bad torque converter. the lock-up is staying engaged at the wrong times.
