Initially, sporadic jerking. Month or so later, check engine light came on, then went away. Next time this warning came on, it was flashing, and the gears began to slip. The car drives but it cannot go up hills. I was told that I need a new transmission.

When the Check Engine Light blinks indicates that there is a serious failure, you should not drive the vehicle and retrieve the trouble codes from the computer to diagnose the problem.

my car is cutting off and jerking/cruise control light is blinking on and off/odometer is not reading. what do you think the problem is? Do you think it is the EGR valve part # EGR4175?
DEALER SAYS THEY NEED CLEANING.Is THIS A REQUIRED MAINTENANCE OR A BOGUS REQUEST.
My check engine light came on last fall and local auto store indicated that it was EGR valve. I had the part replace...
keep cut off. I have changed the fuel pump and fuel filter check the Cadillac converter I also made sure that the alternator is charging correctly
Next to the TCS light on the dashboard there is a light that appears to be the outline of the car's engine. It stays on when when car is started. What is it?
