lately my car has been chugging off the start unless I take it really easy, I thought it was from the cold but just tonight I noticed The SES light. Any thoughts?

Have you checked to see why the SES light is coming on (i.e. have you checked the codes)? Seriously, I'm trying not to sound rash, but with the little bit of information you've provided do you really think that anyone can diagnose what's wrong with your car?

Get the codes checked, then Search for what the codes mean, then search for possible fixes, then if you still don't know post what you've checked along with any modifications to your car and anything else you think would be helpful and we might be able to help you figure it out...but with the little bit of info you've provided, we'd have about as good of a chance of solving the Kennedy assasination as we would with troubleshooting your problem...

Just wait until you get the codes to try and start troubleshooting it...that's what they're for, to point you in the right direction...otherwise, we're really in the same place as we were after your first post...enjoy the holiday and try again tomorrow...:bigthumb:

took me about 20 min. i even cleaned corrosion from battery while i was at it. runs strong, no ses light and no stalling.
I even started practicing my launch after learning from the "How to launch an automatic thread"
NICE!
Thanks guys, I will try to search better next time and use my head and go to autozone to find out codes before asking questions.
