2002 Ford Taurus SES 3.0L Vulcan engine. Engine/transmission vibration/hesitation when driving the highway and the A/C is on. When the A/C is off, smooth ride no issues. Read some on the issue, but I am...

The A/C compressor cycles on and off as you drive, sometimes 4 times/minute. This is normal.
If it is worse than it used to be, maybe the compressor is the issue. How does it feel if you turn off O/D so it does not shift into 4th gear, but stays in 3rd gear.

Hesitation going uphills doesnt seem to want to shift from 2nd into 3rd gear

I assume you have check the fluid level to ensure there is enough fluid... If not, do that first. Problems with the transmission not shifting is generally related to fluid pressure not getting where it needs to go when it needs to go there. That could mean low fluid or a bad solenoid in the transmission responsible for controling that gear. If you checked the fluid and it's still not operating correctly, that's beyond our help. Take it to a transmission shop. Good luck.
