I have a 1998 STS, there are no codes, and the car runs great, I was screwing around and trying to take off fast and the car has no power until I get up to 25MPH, then it takes off like a bad outta hell. Also I use midgrade gas.

anyone have thoughts on this.

Do you mean MESSAGES or Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)?

You are describing how the engine performs when starting off in 2nd gear.

yes, there are no trouble codes,

Ranger: what does "T/C disengaged?" mean?

I am assuming you mean traction control, yes, I tried both ways and got the same result.

Do you have a button to disengage the T/C (Traction Control) and if so, is it disengaged as it will then disable 1st gear.
