abs light, trac light, check tire pressure light, then almost dies

Asked by Mar 24, 2010 at 09:39 AM about the 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when i start the car off in drive, almost all the lights come on, then when i start off, it almost quits and i can hear a popping sound under the front, then loose brakes and power...then inexplicably the popping and jumping stops and the car runs fine...except it uses more gas than it should.  our mechanic looked at it using a computer in his shop and could find nothing wrong.  
any help is appreciated.
thanks,
Trint

sounds like an intermitent problem. It could possibly be an electrical connection that is loose or a ground connection that is either loose or corroding.
