Locked torque converter seems to disengage when going down hill. Also, speed control cannot control speed of car going down any slight hill. Seems to be not locked up, etc. Cannot use engine compression, etc, to slow vehicle. Cruise control us is useless on any type of downgrade! is this a design flaw or can it be repaired? vehicle is a leased car through wheels, Inc. Thank you.
