    Do you have the codes that the tech got when he tuned it?This could help a lot for diagnosing.On some of these the check engine light will cause the trac light to also come on.That is why it is important to get the codes.

The most common emission system problem to set off the check engine light is a loose or defective gas cap ( always tighten cap until you hear at least two or three clicks, and try switching the cap with another one to see if it makes a difference ). The trac light is for the traction control system. Either your spinning your tires a lot or maybe a ABS wheel sensor is bad, dirty or a loose wire. The trac light might be on because of a computer error as well ( if you just bought it, make sure all tires are the same size and brand, because some systems are sensitive to different tire circumferences ).

I have a 93 buick regal custom 3.1L. The car takes two tries to start and then once it gets going it will stop when i take my foot off the gas. Any advice?


Sounds fuel related. but, first, when was your last tune-up(plugs, fuel filter, pcv valve, air filter, check all fluid levels)? If everything has been checked, the next thing is get your fuel pressure checked with a fuel pressure gauge. Also have your diagnostic codes, if any, read by a parts store for free. A code will direct you to an engine or emissions-related problem.

Regardind the A/C situation is posible that your compressor is getting stuck either for lack of internal lubrication or overpressure, either way is time to replace it. The second part might be related to the security system, the mirrors sounds like a different fuse.
