    What other symptoms? How hard is it to get to 45? Does it start and idle normally? Does it shift gears correctly?Do you hear a strange hissing noise from exhaust when accelerating hard? Is it smooth or rough running when at 45? You say "chronic problem' ---how long --miles and time? What other repair attempts made and by whom , a shop or personal?
