Well the security blinking light probably is the secure cut off system that they comes with it all car that has it does the same thing.but lets go back to the noise coming out of the muffler. that noise started rite after you had the problem.if so check your engine oil make sure is not mixing water or way too bad. that can cause the engine to get stocked down the road couse ther not lubrication apropated.that proble had come to my garage. another thing when you have a bad inigtio coil that could happen when it get hot .when it get cold back again it will let the car start. good luck hope this help with your problem.

While driving, the rpm suddenly goes up and down and the engine died and the aircon is turned off. when its park the idling is rough. could it be the egr valve thats causing it?

Sounds like a fuel issue try replacing the fuel filter first if the problem persist take it to a shop to determine if it is the fuel pump or injectors.

Lose in momentum or power when motorway driving. Seems to happen between 70-85. No Engine lights or even a hange in the rev counter... Even my girlfriend noticed it when she drove it.

don't ignore simple maintenance issues which can cause minor problems like this. namely a filthy air filter, or restricted fuel filter.

When driving at 45-55mph the "d" on the dash that indicates the gearshift is in drive will suddenly dissapear. This is the indication that when I come to a stop light the transmission will now slip trying...

It's possible there is an electronic fault or a more serious internal mechanical condition causing the transmission to slip as it warms up. After parking for a bit the transmission cools down and often they will work better for a while until they warm up again. To start with I would have the transmission controller checked to see if there are any service codes and then have it test driven by a transmission specialist when the problem is occuring to get his opinion on it. It does sound a lot like a slipping clutch pack from what you describe however which would require the transmission to be removed to fix the problem. Good luck and hope this helps out a bit!

turn the car on, disconnect the battery, if it dies immediately, your alternator is most likely bad. take to autozone or your nearest auto parts store to have it tested.
