The trac off light came on and stays on. this happened a few days ago. now as i am driving and it shifts gears there is a clunking and it is running rough?

Asked by Dec 18, 2014 at 09:23 AM about the 1999 Pontiac Grand Am 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The light was on when I picked my car up from the shop where they put a new gas
tank, fuel pump and sending unit on my car.  They also cleaned the engine to try and
determine where my car was dripping a little oil.  This work was done 5 days ago and
even though the light was on when I picked the car up it ran OK.  It did clunk when I
put it in gear sometimes.  Now it clunks as I drive down the road the the transmission
shifts.  Coincidence or could something have become disconnected during my repairs?

1 Answer

Most likely did it on purpose to make you pay more for another repair. I would take it back and ask them.
