Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
Ever since my Stabilitrak light came on so has my Traction light, and they flash back and forth on and off. No one or the dealership knows what is wrong and because those lights are on it makes my truck **** into first gear. Im tired of taking it to different places and they charging me for not knowing what it is. Then what really makes me mad is I took it to the Lang's Chevrolet dealership to have them look at it, and none of them knew what it was then to add insult to injury they wanted to charge me $1500.00 to take my engine apart to see if it was that then told me " if it wasn't i'd be charged again to look at something else" and i'm like really!! I took it too the dealership because this is where we suppose to bring it to get our vehicle fixed and if the body shop doesnt know nor does anyone else then I think it's time for the manufacture to step up and do something. Because of all this i've almost been in two fatal accidents with my daughter in the vehicle and one being in rain and my truck sliding all over the highway a semi and myself almost slammed into each other, and the second was my truck was jerking and it cut off in the middle of the highway during rush hour traffic, cars going 70 miles an hour and my truck just cuts off. Its too the point where I ask myself if its safe for me to drive and I shouldnt have to, I bought me truck at the dealership with cash and I feel like something needs to be done before myself or my child gets hurt, an then that would lead to a court case.

The problem sounds like your kick down cable has gone bad. There should be a cable that runs from the transmission to the linkage on the TBI(i'm assuming it is a TBI[Throttle Body Injection]) At the throttle bracket, it is the lowest cable. It should have a little plastic box and you should be able to push on the button and slide the little plastic piece in or out of the box. This will adjust your shift points, being plastic, the cable likes to slip if it gets old. Also if you have book or have access to one it should tell you how to locate and check it but usually you have to replace them once they start to slip, the one I got for my 1992 was only like 28 dollars so it's not to bad just a real pain.

I fix my own 1998 cavalier. before I had the same problem. mechanics made me changed catalyte converter, combustion gaskets, EGR, fuel injectors with a tune up on spark plugs and boots... BUT the problem was still there. they all gave up and told me to trash the dang thing but I kept it. did research and studies, lots. finally found out the car was design without a regular pcv valve. **There is a thing called an air/oil separator on it. Its mounted on the block of the engine just right above of the oil filter. You must clean out the tubes. The one that usually gets clogged by oil slug would be the one connected to the oil. runs smooth like a baby after you get that clean. hope this helps.

the engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.
the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..
your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.

I would advise to take it to a shop you trust and let them scan your vehicle for trouble codes. From there they can give you an idea as to why these messages appeared. : )
