you can push pedal to floor and nothing. it seems to occur after driving several miles. other than that runs very well.You can stop,sometimes shut car down and then proceed and it doesnt do it again. would having two slightly different tires on front and rear be playing any part in this by affecting the traction control set up. Driving my daughter crazy!
The instrument lights come on, I lose power, it sputters, then dies.
When i put the car in drive and push on the gas pedal it feels as if the brakes are applied and car doesnt want to move and if it does it only goes so far and then its like the brakes are applied.
lights blink erratically on and off for hours.Also the electronic box controlling lights sometimes makes loud noise.
Now window on passenger side only works from driver.
Battery gets run down.
Codes P0171, 0174, 0300 came up. How do I find out what they mean? Gas cap has been checked and is good.
The headlights flicker on and off in the daytime and night time while driving sometimes and when the car is shut off with no key in the ignition. This is very disturbing especially at night.
My 1998 aurora overheated a couple of days ago. The oil is not milky on the dip stick. Took the car around the block twice after letting it warm up...temp gauge at beginning was at 200 degrees when I took off. After two laps around the block the temp gauge rose close to 220. Pulled into my lot and placed cardboard under engine area. Open hood and noticed at that time that antifreeze was steaming from the threads of the cap that covers the resevoir to the antifreeze. Did taste the oil on the cardboard and there was not bitterness to it.

I am no machanic but would appreciate some sound advice as to what it going on and/or suggestions as to what may be causing this.

Thank you,
John

No diag codes displayed. The green cruise light flashes breifly when the ing switch is turned on. Green light will not come on when you try to engage cruise control above 25mph. Cruise has worked once in the last three months. Intermittent???
