Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
Trac off light is on and my car wont go up a hill. every time i get to going up one the car struggles and feels like it is surging forward trying to pull itself up the hill. Im running between 40 and 50 mph by the time I get partially up the hill with the rpms running really high 2500-3000 for my car. It normally runs at 2000. I ran the car at a constant hwy speed of 75-80 mph for a 2 hr trip to the doctor one day and the thing hasnt been right since. Help! thats the best info I can give ya about it.

SOURCE: low trac light
I had the exact same problem with my 2004 Cavlier. I took it in and the dealer said it was a voltage problem with my speed regulator located in one of my wheel bases. I had it replaced under my extended warenty. I suguesst taking you car to a mechnanic as soon as possible, cause it could be that sensor, or an electrical issue all together. Especially if it is that sensor, since it effects your braking system, traction system, and the overall drivability of the car.

you might need a new catalyic converter
if not i would suggest that you get your sensor checked
these can be a problem the sensor thinks the wheel is slipping and cuts the torque and power down this could be what is happening
also could because of airflow control with the catalyic converter

Replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). $30 to $40 if you do it yourself or $70 to $95 if you have a service station do it. This will fix all of your problems related to the TRAC OFF light and transmission shifting into low gear.
