Default Thinking....

I have a couple questions.... First off when you need to be at 4500 rpms ot maintain pretty much any speed is that directly a tranny problem... Or could it be pcm/tranny/Engine malfunction. Second Does the traction control usually just die out or could there be a loose/water destroyed wire. And yes abs and traction control lights are both on and those systems are definately not working. I have another intresting fact about my car. When the car is under about 150 degrees according to temp guage the car has crazy amounts of power.. I can break free form a 20mph roll and leave a nice patch of rubber and it keeps pulling until the tranny does it'* lil rev limiter not shift BS lol. So when it gets to normal operating temp IE. 180 all the power is loss no burnouts and my engine shutters whenever the SC is engaged (meaning pass 0 psi). IDk what exactly causes this i should prolly do more investigation to see how bad my water damage is. Any ideas thoughts facts are welcome thank you!

The TC/ABS can be a bad wheel speed sensor. We don't need to discuss the transmission and the 4500/shifting issues IMO.
