What does EPC light mean on the dashboard

Probably 'Electronic Power Control'. Is your car a VW?
It's basically a sensor problem telling you that something is amiss. There's many sensors in the engine and also ABS. One of the sensors is indicating there's a fault on that particular system.

If the engine seems to be on reduced power it could be a throttle problem. Also check your brake light switch.

My 87 chrysler has rough idle when sitting at stop lights and stalls slight hesitation sputter when accelerateing

It's the lean burn system that's probably the problem. If you replace the Engine control module/computer then it should solve your problem at least temporarily. I know there is a conversion to get away from the lean burn system for good, but I have not tried that out myself yet. But my engine control module seems to go out during extreme weather.

I have a Seat Cordoba 2007 and while driving I get the following warnings on the dashboard: ABS brakes, handbrake and electrohydraulic system on. Who knows what is the meaning of the fault code?

go to advance auto - or auto zone etc -- get them to run the test - write down all codes - - then
take down the vin number - call the dealer and ask what the code is - and ask about any recalls

Ignition system fails. would like to convert from lean burn to basic electronic ignition

Mopar still offers the conversion kit, to swap out the lean burn to regular electronic ignition. I believe the kit is about $150. Has the vac advance dist,. ballast, and elec ign box along with all wiring and instructions... easy backyard/garage fix..couple hours...done... just did my 5th Ave last like a charm...

Were the hell is the ignition module on an 83 corboda

Look on the firewall where the two cross member rods are (if yours has them). It should be mounted on the firewall more towards the passenger side of the firewall.

To much Co2,the lamdasond is new

Replace the ignition with a MOPAR electronic ignition kit #p3690426. You will never deal with lean burn again. It costs about $200 and bypasses the LBS.

Installing a chrome engine dress up kit 79 chrysler cordoba

I have done this with my '79, so yes it will work. Although my car is a 360 four barrel, the external engine size is identical. The black box on the stock air cleaner is the "Electronic Spark Advance" computer. It replaced the more well known "Lean Burn" as the ignition/fuel management system. Since you will be disconnecting and discarding the ESA due to the air cleaner change, another ignition system must be installed to replace it - if someone has not already done so. I used a Mopar Performance electronic ignition system-still available for about 200.00. This will not hurt anything. The chrome valve covers fit right on. However on my car, the vacuum amplifier bracket was attached to the right side value cover which I cut off the stock cover and screwed into the chrome cover. I sealed the screw holes with gasket sealer. I do not know exactly what you are referring to regarding the cover connecting the value cleaner to the crankcase breather. There is a hose from the breather which connects to a fitting on the air cleaner. This hose allows the crankcase to vent into the carburetor during wide open throttle conditions when the engine vacuum-operated PCV cannot function. I do like the chrome effect even if it does require more care and maintenance. Good luck!
