Q: Car makes popping noise

asked by on

My car sometimes makes a popping noise when I accelerate. My cruise control stopped working, but the light comes on when I set it. It just wont hold a set speed.

Hello. The vehicles cruise control system uses an actuator and cable to open the throttle body and hold cruise. The throttle cable and cruise control cable operate independently, but are both linked to the throttle body. Have an experienced technician inspect the cruise control issue, actuator and electrical system for faults.
