    It's best to fix the transmission leak before it gets worse and "drains" the transmission causing serious/expensive problems.Cruise control is a secondary and less important problem. Cruise control has electrical inputs, and usually some sort of vacuum actuator that pulls on the throttle linkage, any auto parts store will have a vacuum hose if you bring it in to them they will match it up for you.
