Hello everyone, this is my first post, hope im doing it right. I have a 2003 sahara, and im having several issues, first the transmission is not shifting right, it would tach up ok from first to second, and then just go through the rest of the gears almost immediately and end up lugging in overdrive. I changed the filter not long ago and there was a good amount of very fine metal flake in the pan, I didn't dump the torque converter, it improved for a while, now the problem im having is that on the interstate the cruise will not maintain speed, it will slow down by 3 or 4 mph as soon as the cruise is set, then it automatically downshifts to regain speed, but it will never shift back into overdrive. Next issue: I seem to be having an intermittent vacuum issue, sometimes the ac controls wont switch properly, at times they work perfectly, ive searched and searched and cant find a leak anywhere, used a stethoscope, starting fluid etc. it seems like when I am having the cruise issue, the ac controls don't function. also in trying to research the problem, I ran across some threads about adjusting the 'transmission kickdown cable", only to find that I don't have one, the brackets are there but no cable, I havnt looked to see if its fallen down by the transmission yet, my question on that is did the 2003 tj's utilize this cable? and if so could this be the problem? This is my 5th jeep, I never had one problem with any of them, and im hoping I can get this one worked out. any help will be greatly appreciated.
