I have a similar problem - could anyone provide some explanation? The car is in the Cadillac Dealership for third time (2004 SRX) and those folks do not seem to be making muh progress. So far they have replaced my O2 sensor ($520) and 'reprogrammed the PCM' ($99 diagnostic charge). All suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Hi yaris is running rich, has poor gas mileage (360km on a full tank). and very slow and choppy idle (idles like a really old car) these are the things i have done so far : change air and fu

Do the following:
1. Clean the throttle body from inside.
2. Adjust the spark plugs gap to 1.00 mm.
3. Check fuel pump pressure. (44 Psi - 49 psi)
4. Remove the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes.
5. Connect the battery terminal.
6. Check the engine oil level and coolant level.
NOTE: Before starting the engine shut off all lights and loads for example room light, blower, radio, parking light etc.
7. Start the engine and hold the throttle at 3000 rpm till radiator fan comes on.
8. After the fan comes on release the throttle pedal and let it idle for 10 minutes.

Traction warning light came on while pulling up to stop light and car starting jerking then quit. I pulled over and didn't find anything wrong so I drove it home. I repalced the theromstat and anti-freeze...

From what you described, it sound like your TCC (torque converter clutch) is not disengaging. TCC apply solenoid circuit shorted to ground, TCC solenoid blockage (easy fix in pan), or TC broken (must remove trans and replace TC).

You should be able to take it to a transmission shop and have them test drive the car to evaluate the transmission and can scan the PCM for the DTC codes that the engine service light is indicating.

Thank you for using Fixya and keep us posted.
