I haven't had this SSEi very long.....does that sound normal?
The Traction control on newer models (95 or 96 i think was the cutoff) is controlled by altering engine timing, and therefore just bogging the engine.
On older models it uses applied braking. So if you're having problems with a bogging engine, that'* one reason why. My roomate'* 01 Cavi will bog down to no end on ice from a start.
