Question about 1998 Pontiac Sunfire
It doesn't do it all the time but here lately when i give gas its more frequent, when i let off gas i hear a rumbling noise not as loud as when i do give gas it shifts ok & runs good want to fix it if its a warning of something going bad
You could have the start of an leaking manifold to find out if this is starting to happen spray some carb cleaner over the inlet manifold while engine is a temp if any changes happen when you spray an area i.e engine idles faster or cuts out then this is were you problem is going to start from. also check the air line with the cleaner. if every thing is fine then its just an intake clean is needed take the top off the inlet spray the carb cleaner in there let it sock for awhile and wipe out ht muck etc. don't do it with the engine running. after a good clean change the air filter. also on some models there is a secondary air intake vale check this as the vale can fail. when the engine valve fails can sound like the engine is high performance but with out the power. usually sits next to the exhaust manifold has 2 pipes coming out of the exhaust manifold to a pipe with a vale on it then a rubber pipe out to the front of the engine bay. some have fans fitted and some don't depends on engine number fitted. will have a filter at the end.

On applications with traction control, there is a switch to deactivate the system, which is normally enabled any time the ignition is turned on. TRAC ON and TRAC OFF lamps inform the driver of system status. The controller may deactivate the traction control system temporarily after it has been engaged for a certain period of time to prevent heat buildup in the brake linings and possible brake fade. ABS braking is not affected by the status of the traction control function. In your case it is the Anti Lock Brake system. You have to take it to a shop and have the antilock brake system checked with some special tools.

Sounds like your timing chain is streched does your car have more than 120,000 miles on it ? Also could be the spark sending unit (called a distributor) any auto parts store can help you with the parts, hope this helps.
