The T/C Light should be the traction control. In all likelihood, it may be indicative that the brakes need servicing. If you have not serviced the brakes in some time, it may be a good idea to check the condition of both the front and rear brakes. I would think that the traction control would be on the front brakes. The sputtering of the engine may or may not be related to the brakes, but I would start there first. If brakes are making the vehicle hesitate, they could be forcing the engine to work too hard to function. I would definitely start with the brakes and move from there. Once you have addressed the brakes there is a high likelihood that the check engine light will go off. If it does not have a reputable auto part store check for any trouble codes in the On Board Computer to get an idea of what else could be wrong. The Brakes should not be ignored in that they are your last defense in controlling the vehicle.
Good luck and happy motoring.

My honda jazz is giving me a problem.when i am by the stop and i accelerate when its green light i feel a shake on the front end wheel.have have changed the tyres i did alignment but still the same

I'm guessing there's a delay in the front brakes releasing when you take your foot off the brakes. Try this experiment. In a large parking area (like a shopping center) where you can give yourself plenty of braking distance, use your emergency (parking) brakes to bring your car to a stop. The parking brakes only operates the rear brakes. When you come to a complete stop, accelerate and see if you still feel this shake on the front steering axle. If the symptom stops when you only use the rear brakes, then the brake master cylinder is not releasing the hydraulic pressure on the front brakes when you take your foot off the brake pedal. Who ever did your tires and alignment job should have suspected this, assuming you mentioned this symptom to them.
You spelled t-y-r-e-s which indicates you originated from Australia or UK England. In USA & Canada, we spell t-i-r-e-s. Put another shrimp on the barbie for me :-)

I have a 1994 bronco, 5.8 hd and when I brake a cluncking sound from underneath the car begins. And it feels somewhat like the anti-lock brake system is kicking in because it kind of kicks the brake pedal...

Have your front suspension checked, especially the radius arm mounting bushings. It sounds like you have warped rotors and the movement is transmitting through other worn parts.

Clunk when shifting car into drive from park 1990 ford taurus.

If the front end vibrates when you put the brakes on it could be a few different problems. Your need to check the brakes, they may be worn. if the back brakes are worn your front brakes are doing all the stopping. if your brakes are fine then you are looking at the front control arms or the upper and lower ball joints. You can take your car to a brake and front end shop for a free estimate. You are probably looking at about 400 to 1200 dollars.
I hope this helps you out

If you can feel it in the brake peddle when you push on it, then your brake rotors are warped. Putting new pads and rotors in will solve this. Is caused by braking too hard (driving really fast to a stop sign and stopping in the last few feet). I have heard a few times that some people upgrade to a better brake when they increase wheel size, but I do not think that is a problem in you case.
