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.
79 chrysler codoba ? don't think its a fuel problem ! I can't believe a cordoba ????????/ really ? I knew someone who had one, white w/ blue interior ! WOW ! after all these years, I need to wrap my head around this . give me a minute ! this bucking violently sounds so familiar !

I'm so intune with todays cars, can't remember ! TIMING may also be an issue ! have you checked all the VACUUM HOSES ? EGR valve ? TODAYS FUEL is bad for this vehicle ! need I say more !
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.
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 month.....works like a charm...
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!
