    a question about 2000 T/A's

    I see that what looks like a cruise control servo on some T/A's mounted beside the A/C accumulator, right behind the Battery...in what years was it put there? why was it moved?...

    I have a 2000 and mine is not there...as far as i know it appears to be down next to the AIR Injection Pump...but the two bolt holes are still where I have seen others. Build Date of mine is 10/00. I have seen other 2000's with the system i have explained....why is my car different? I also noticed with this other system that it uses 3 seperate cables for cruise while my car only has 2...or only 2 that i can see...I like mine better its a cleaner set up...i was just wandering..thanks in advance

    That would be the traction control equipment. I bet you don't have T/C.

    I hate traction control. My T/A before this one had it and I don't miss it at all. The first thing after starting that car was to reach for the TCS button. Less junk under the hood makes it look better too.

    Yeah I agree its traction control. Not sure I agree its crap. I live in Oklahoma and when we get snow the only reason driving my car is not completely impossible is the fact that the braking system works exceptionally well. I have friends with traction control and they can get around WAY WAY better than I can if there is any little hill. Yeah yeah I know I shouldn't drive our cars in the snow period, but its the only vehicle I got and you got to get to work somehow. I'm looking into getting a beater truck for snow days, just got to find one for the right price.

    Yeah I have been told that and I am fully aware of the benefits of good rubber. Unfortunetly i'm 10% too lazy and 90% fiancially not capable of keeping an extra 2 wheels with tires or 2 tires and paying a shop to take them on and off in between seasons. We don't get that much snow, I would be better off just sitting at home and making friends cart me around .

    I like when people talk about how bad these cars are in the snow. Granted, they're not a walk in the park but I had a 79 T/A that makes 4 gens look like they're AWD. That thing would sit in one spot at a traffic light and the ass end would start sliding out on it when I would lift off the brake to go to the gas. Ohio is not known for it's warm dry winters either. That winter really sucked. I got stuck in my own driveway daily.
