RE: auto trans upshift delay & ac cutoff

I assume the fluid level is correct and you changed it at least every
50K miles ;-) Then the question is: when you shift it manually from 1 to
2 or from 2 to 3 - does it shift instantly?

	Also, ac worked fine but noticed it cuts off when I heavy
accelerate. Is
	there a switch or something that controls this or might it be
related to

and it

kicks in and

It's normal, the AC cuts out when kickdown switch is activated
