OK, just how much money do you want to put into a 2001 model? Question- do your RPMs go UP and Down just driving the car without cruise control??

No that has never happened. It only happens when you are in cruise and it has kicked into a lower gear on a hill and then not all the time.

OK, how steep is the hill your climbing and have you noticed that it doesn't do it on more moderate grades? I think the problem is with the calibration of the cruise control system... Again, how much money are you willing to spend on a 2001 vehicle.... When you think of it in terms of technology, a car that is almost 16 years old has ancient safely features, no vehicle dynamic control, side air bags, superior fuel economy, modern CVT transmission.... newer head gaskets technology, etc.... I don't know how many miles are on your , but, it's more TIME than mileage.... I would consider turning this around now..... Perfect time....
