On my 4000q, the vaccum valves at the pedals sometimes leak a bit. After a
bump, the car might slowly slow down (cruise does not go completly off.
Vaccum pump just can't keep up with the leak. It goes  completly off when
you hit a BIG bump, and the switches turn OFF the cruise)

Or, sometimes cruise just will not engage.

Both problems are cured by pulling up on the pedals (clutch & brake) at
the same time with one's toes...
Not elegant, but sure a lot easier than going upside down under the dash to
fix  the vaccum valves...
