Hi Im David. go back over your work. obviously something was disconnected or broken in the process of replacing the pipe. look at any connectors or sensors in the immediate work area.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that could be going on. If the traction control light is on along with an engine performance issue that started at the same time then you may have an electronic throttle control related issue. The stability control system relies on the ability to request torque from the engine so the two systems are integral.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting and then testing can be done from there. Do you know what codes are setting?
