A 98 Lincoln town car and when I reach 35/40mph my car does not keep going. The track light comes on. And when I'm going up hill it also drops in speed quickly. The car has back fired twice on me

Possible plugged catalytic converter ! is the check engine light on ? You should take it an have scan tool hooked up to see if any codes are stored in any control modules ! An have exhaust system pressure tested !

My traction control light came on after installing an Volant cold air intake on my 2006 CADILLAC XLR V HELP ME PLEASE

Most likely the air induction probably needs to be programmed into the ECM. But also you may have jounced a wire that has a connection to traction control and it is setting it off. Otherwise, you may have a standard trAction control problem that has to be addressed in the shop.

When i brake on my 2003 supercrew, it sounds almost as if a horn is blowing. very annoying

Hello, You may have a bad brake booster, there can be a check valve in the feed line to the booster. You need to have a pressure check done on the brake booster. Be careful not to use any chemical which can dissolve rubber or plastic if you use a spray around the booster. A water spray may indicate a leaking booster if you test it with the engine running. The rpm will change from a leak.

The ABS system should show a "check light" if it is malfunctioning. The modulation inside the brake unit possibly could make noise.

The Traction control, if equipped, can activate a control valve in the intake system to limit engine RPM. When this system works, it shuts off intake air to slow down the engine when the system detects slippage in the rear wheels. If you have a toggle button on the dash to switch off the Traction control, turn the sytem off and try driving it and see if the noise goes away. Debris in the rear rotor "drum" brake could possibly blind a wheel sensor counting the revs and activate the Traction control

Idle speed control "motor" is a type of intake air control used to smooth out the engine. It operates in a air chamber and its the last thing I can think of that even remotely could make a noise.

What does the tcl dash light on a 2002 mitsubishi gallant ls mean

tcl is traction control. Google eclipse tcl and you will find your answer. Sounds like it is a common problem with the MAP sensor when people put on aftermarket air intakes.

Transmission rebuilt 5 years ago on a 1997 Eclipse RS. Now, the RPM levels are extremely high even without full acceleration.

The likely cause for your high RPM may be caused by a vacuum leak in the engine. You can open the hood and check your hoses for cracks and leaks. This is a good place to start, but may no be a full solution.

Starts but dies when engine warms up

Ok, i have a 93 mitsubishi eclipse, so same motor as mine. I had a similar problem after replacing my battery. In removing the intake tube, it split for about 3 inches on the underside of the tube, allowing air to bypass the air intake sensor ( the place where the tube connects to the filter housing). Check this and let me know :)

The error is actually P1400 Manufacture Controlled Auxillary Emissions Controls. I'm having that issue with my 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse right now. Not to mention the bad paint job.
