Where do I begin.
ABS, Trac Off, and Service lights are on 90% of time. This has been happening for a year but car didn't start running badly until three weeks ago. The code shows a bad speed sensor on wheel bearing. The couple of times all three aren't on the trac off light goes on and off every minute or so.
About 25% percent of time car dies or nearly dies when put in gear.
When air conditioning is running, after about ten minutes of driving car starts to jerk. It feels like I'm tapping the brakes while I'm on the gas. Once it starts jerking it does not stop even if I turn the air conditioning off. It has to sit for a couple hours before it will stop. Also, engine light comes on 25% of time and now the brake light comes on about the same time it starts jerking. Just discovered today that cruise control works intermittently. Runs fine on 50 minute drive to work without a/c on.
Fuel injectors have been cleaned, spark plugs changed, and alternator checked since this started about three weeks ago.
It has been to a mechanic several times in the last few weeks and the only codes that show are for the speed sensor on the wheel bearing.
Any thoughts would be appreciated as my mechanic has given up.
