This must be a 2.3 miller cycle. it is going into "limp home" mode. when this happens, it wont rev over about 3k, and tcs off/tcs lites come on. it feels a lot like fuel cut. probably the check engine lite is also on, and what codes are stored? most common is P1525/26 and 1540, which are the solenoids that control the abv. the abv controls boost, and when this valve is not working proplerly, the pcm stops communication with tcm, and it goes limp home. if you can locate the solenoids, they are on the back of the engine, right next to the egr valve. from right to left, you need to look at the second and forth. you need to ohm them when they are hot. normal is around 26. if they are over 30, or 0, they are bad. there are other possibilities, but this is most common

2003 mustang when traction control light comes on the car lose power almost like shutting down, when it goes off it pick up speed.


The traction control system DOES cut your engine power when the tires spin. That is by design. The system cuts engine power to stop the wheels spinning and restores power once the wheels regain traction. It feels odd when the tires spin and power cuts out. It's good practice to lift off the accelerator when the system kicks in. Otherwise, if you are on gravel or slick streets the tires may spin, stop when traction control kicks in, and then spin again when power is restored. It is not an "elegant" solution but it does work for the most part.

Low traction light


sounds like failed wheel speed sensors. you can get around this by turning off traction control until you can get em fixed. If you hold in the the traction control button, it should shut the system down

A yellow warning light like a wheel spinning. What is it?


This is a traction control light. It seems like your TCS is bad, or has a sensor issue causing the vehicle to retard the acceleration. The car thinks that it is losing traction, so It is automatically trying to compensate

If it runs that bad, you should have a check engine light and some codes set. Have you tried having anyone read the computer error codes?
Check the plastic tubing from the air filter to the throttle body for cracks.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette and the traction active light comes on and makes a growling noise when you begin to take off and turn the steering wheel. How do I solve this problem?


the traction control system watches wheel speed thru the wheel speed sensors. it was designed to aid in traction in slippery conditions. when one of the wheels loses traction and the system sees an abnormal insrease of speed in one of the wheels the system will activate and derate the power to avoid wheel slippage. going around a corner the outside wheel will spin faster then the inside wheel. under normal acceleration nothing will happen, however under heay acceleration you may be causing a wheel to break free, especially on wet roads. you could have a speed sensor problem but i would expect you would also have an antilock problem. try a slower acceleration around corners then try a heavy acceleration, if it was ok on normal acceleration but activated on heavy acceleration then your going to have to lighten up on the pedal a bit. otherwise the system should be scanned for codes. i never liked this system much and it wasen,t around too long. good luck!
