I don't have a definitive answer and judging from your prior posts, the ideas I have to share, you probably have already had. I don't think an Autobox should be crawling up hill. Most automatics I have driven would sit still on a hill. Normally the idle on an autobox is higher than that of a manual, so I think your idle is fine. My guess is that the transmissions torque converter is set low. Based on your information and others this may be a factory thing. Lowering the idle would decrease the tendancy to crawl, but the engine wouldn't run as smooth at idle. If you are on a flat road and let off the brake the car should move forward and attain a speed of around 5mph, if your car is reaching like 15 then you may have a problem. Anyway, those are my pennies do with them what you please.
