I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am and for the past 3 months it revs high when being started then down also for 2 weeks the Trac off light comes on car tries to die but when more fuel is given it picks up

You may have an idle air control motor issue ( IAC).This motor controls the idle on start up as well as normal driving conditions. Is the check engine light on. If it is it may give a hint as to what the problem is.The traction control light has no control as far as the idle is concerned,. It is controlled by the ABS system. Usually the ABS light will come on if there is a traction control issue.

Goto autozone/advance/pep boys and have them do a free OBD check with a scan tool. Most likely the O2 (oxygen) sensor(s).

My audi A-6 3.0 litre engine ws completely rebuilt 11 months go. Today it suddenly began running rough, check engine light came on and will flash around 45 mph.What is wrong?

If you don't have an OBD II reader, you can go to your local auto parts store like NAPA, Pep Boys, or Autozone; some have rental programs; or else the counterman may have one readily available and pull the DTC code(s) for you.
He or she may even advise you to possible repair solutions base on the fault codes.
Absence any fault code information, you would not be able to diagnose and repair the problem.
The other solution is to take the car back to the shop where the rebuild occurred- you may still be under warranty for repairs.

Son let his car run out of gas, and when he filled it this code appeared with rough idle and stalling code 2002

I had a something similar to this happen to a girlfriend of mine. She has a 98 escort and it ran out of gas and the service engine soon light came on after she filled it up. If this is what your talking about check your owners manual. Most of the time if there is really nothing wrong with car you can drive it around ( Generally 20 min in town and 10 on the hwy with 4 idle periods (4 times of the engine being at idle) - do not cut engine off) and the light will go off. The rough idle code most likely happened when the engine ran roughly because. it was running out of gas.

E ng lite came on pulled to stop light engine ran rough and was shaking ck oil was low filled oil ran better this am wife went to take truck to work got to the end of block engine ran rough brought back...

I don't think the rough running had much to do with oil level, since it started running rough a 2nd time. Check the fuel filter and ignition timing.

Run in to a Pep Boys, or Autozone and get a free code scan done, to see what comes up and go from there. If code doesn't point you to obvious fix, get back to us with the codes and we'll help you from there. Much faster, and cheaper that way, then guessing.

Run into an autozone or Pep Boys Or similar big autoparts chain & they will scan for problem codes for free usually, and then you /we can pinpoint problem much easier & cheaper. Write the trouble codes down & come back if fix is not obvious.

The plug is located at the bottom of the steering column.The fault seems to be the mass air meter though.
