Very likely that the 3-4 clutch pack piston seal has blown out. Will need to be taken apart and repaired before too much damage occurs. Drive it in manual 2 to get where you are going. Do NOT put it in 3 or OD and do not let it try to go into 3rd again until it is rebuilt. Sorry for the bad news. This is a common problem.

Replace the fuel filter, check fuel pressure and flow.

That is a REAL SHAME... because the MOST LIKELY
source of all your troubles is the 17 year old seal
on the front of that compressor...

opening the system... you have let in atmosphere...
(means ANY moisture).

If your system works at IDLE... it is working WELL...

Right now my BEST GUESS is that you did not pull a
full vacuum... and hold it for about 45 minutes...

((intended to EVACUATE & DRY out your system))...

Check out the ROBINAIR vacuum pumps
on AMAZON...

OR (used)...
If the SELLER says fully functional... It is a protected
purchase (eBay guaranteed (have a look)) :

ROBINAIR COOLTECH 15400 Vacuum Pump eBay

Of course you are on your own getting the R12/22
fittings to adapt your R134a fittings (type... MAYBE
(you MUST check vehicles LABELS yourself...!!)

I am just saying ICE in your expansion valve
is what is KILLING YOU (my opinion).

Hope this helps

You will need a multimeter to test the tps--do you have one? Normally, a bad tps will set the engine light--is it on?
if yes to both of these questions, have the computer scanned at your local parts store and post the trouble codes here. Also reply with engine size if you want a test procedure.

The volume control on your radio is called a potentiometer, which may be going bad. It works better when its warm because materials expand as they warm up and make tighter contact with each other.

It is also a possible a bad wiring connection exists. Poor contact will cause static, poor audio quality and intermittent output.

Your radio will have plug type connector(s) Your speakers will most likely each have two wires with single female spade connectors of different widths (keeps the polarity correct) the wire with the stripe (of whatever color) will be connected to the negative (-) speaker terminal.

So you need to check all the connections, one is making poor contact.
If both speakers (assuming you have two) sound good or bad... then start with the plug connectors for the radio and any independent black ground wire coming out of the radio.

If one speakers sounds okay check the connections on the other one. You check the connections by carefully pulling the speaker wire off of the speaker and then carefully pushing it back on making sure it feels tight and secure.

PS: If you pull the fuse for the radio, the radio will have no power and will not work. The radio coming on proves the fuse is good.

PSS: Your owners manual should provide lots of information on your sound system components.

Your pump is controlled by the pcm using a 12 volt signal to the relay. Pull out the relay and probe the relay socket with a voltmeter. There should be 2 terminals with 12 volts when the key is on. With the key off, there should be one 12 volt terminal coming from the ecm b fuse. See top left of diagram below.

run the fault codes and check for problem ambient temp sensor, barometric sensor and MAF/VAF sensors
It is not getting the correct air/fuel ratio readings so it is running like a choke should be on but isn't
