It used to work but not anymore. I'm getting ready to take a long trip and would love to be able to utilize this feature. Thanks.

Mine has been acting up also, as soon as I find out I will share the wealth. It loses speed after a mile or 2.

Check the Vacume lines from the Curise Control Servo( On top of the Trans ), Follow those lines all the way back to the intake or Vacume T and see if you have any rotted lines... If these lines collapse under vacume you will loose Cruise control

go with the administrator'* idea on the vacuum lines and that should do it. i had the same problem with mine.....would gradually lose speed and then finally quit working all together. i got the same advice and traced the lines....all it was was that one had fallen off! reattached it and she'* been fine for the last few months.

you do need the cruise. i was doing a lot of freeway driving at the time and i know it was slowing driving me nuts! besides which as we all know bonne'* are sneaky girls...don't control the speed and you are sucking the paint off the cars you are passing before you know it!
