Service Stabilitrak

I did a search and read many other posts, but they all seem slightly different than mine.

I was getting on it this monring, the car down shifted and bogged almost like hitting the rev limmiter and then the dash lit up with Service Stabilitrack and all the traction control and abs lights lit up. It ideling rough and shifting funny ( I assume this is limp mode) any ideas or suggestions?

Safe to drive it around? I have a 40 mile track back home today before I can put a scanner on it.

Turned out to be a blown header gasket.

Did you reuse the OEM gasket when you installed the OBX headers??

Yep. Probably could have been avoided by re tq. the bolts after a few heat cycles.

Well crap spoke too soon. Replaced the header gaskets still misfiring and ticking. Looks like a lifter may have let go. Sucks, but on the bright side gives me an excuse to do ls3 conversion and a cam.
