Very poor mid to high rpm performance.

I have a 96 cherokee inline 6. Ill start with the known issues. #1 transmission needs drained and filter needs replaced. recently on the highway its started shifting back n forth between drive and overdrive so im sure thats part of the problem. It also has a cracked header and possibly an exhaust leak. But now on the highway it will not go over 65mph. I held it to the floor for a few seconds and it wont budge over 3500rpms. It seems to still have decent pickup driving in town. Definetly not what it had before. I guess Im trying to figure out what the main part of the problem could be. Im on a bit of a budget and trying to fix one problem at a time. I just changed the oil and replaced the sparkplugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. any help or advice would be great. thanks.

Check out these forums to help with your transmission problems.

I replaced throttle position sensor for less than $40.
