Default EnGine Hesitation

Can someone Tell me what I should check first If my engine Hesitates mostly at highway driving, it only does it when going up an incline or on cruise control on open roads, not around town, Should I check the EGR valve?? or what 1st?

A mechanic just looked at my car and failed to find anything wrong with it, he said something about the Lock box searching for a gear for the torque converter and said it was normal in these cars...???? any ideas?

does it feel jearky at around 60 mph after 5th kicks in?.......if so at that speed the engines low rpms cause miss fires and losses of voltage to show up more easily...try the plugs and wires...it shouldnt be more than 50 bucks...

umm... igor, I don't think many people have swapped in 5 speed auto trannys like you, speaking of which... what tranny did you put in and how much did it cost??? most people just have the stock 4 speed auto
