Hi,
Today while driving my car, a 2013 Encore with 25000 miles three things happened at the same time. The check engine light, traction control light started flashing and the engine started stumbling and acted like it couldn't decide to up or downshift. Now, after getting it home the check engine light is no longer flashing and is on constantly. It still stumbles when trying to accelerate under load.. Any ideas/ suggestions?

Have the codes read and post the numbers here.

Well, today is Sunday so reading any codes will have to wait till I get it to the dealer tomorrow. I was just wondering if anyone here might have any ideas as to what it "might" be so I could at least sound like I sort of know what I'm talking about when I deal with them at the shop. Not looking for you to give me a quotable diagnosis....

Can you tell me why my foot hurts.

That's about the same thing you are asking me. I can tell you that the flashing means you are dumping enough raw fuel in the Catalytic Converter to destroy it if you continue driving it.

Autozone is open on Sunday and they read them for free.

You can also buy a code reader of your own at WalMart

So sorry you free advice was not up to your standards. I will request a refund for you.
