    Service traction control, stumbling barely stay running limped home.

    So I have a 09 Stock M6 Sedan. I had just left the house heading down the road 25-35 mph and it started flashing the traction control, check engine light, and service stabiltrack. Started stumbling in all gears, barely made it home. Now it sounds like there is a rattle from the supercharger. Please help. I started researching and have seen possible Throttle body, supercharger rebuild/isolator. The supercharger was supposedly replaced under warranty before I got it.

    did you hit the rev limiter at any point?

    my 1st v2 did that once, and in the end it was a cracked sleeve.....not saying that one caused the other, but I was driving it hard, and it hit the limiter, went into limp mode and never ran quite right and later the piston broke at the ring land on #8 and cracked #6

    to get it out of limp mode, I reflashed the car and it started and ran, but never was the same up to the point where the piston broke.

    I might have about a week ago. I was driving it pretty aggressively, and had to slow quickly so I was braking, down shifting and shift into 2nd earlier than I should have. I was immediately hoping I didn't hurt anything, but it was fine for the last week or so.

    Disconnected the battery, let it sit for a bit then tried again. Sounded a little better at idle, but after a minute the service traction control popped back up. Also the exhaust tone sounds a little deeper then normal.

    Ok, so negative update...tried drive to the auto parts store less than a mile down the road. car sounds like its trying to eat it self. Codes thrown C05561, P0300, P1101, P0430. Bought some MAF sensor cleaner, headed home and started smoking then died. Pulled the intake tube covered in oil. Sprayed it out, sprayed MAF, and throttle body. Got it started for a minute then it died again and now nothing when turn the key.

    ABS sensor failure or ABS module failure. I have had it on my Yukon; and Jetta; it can throw the car into limp mode.

    I would run a scope into the 7 and 8 bores.

    Sucking oil into the intake means oil is getting past the piston. Sorry to say, but Evil V gave you the most possible cause back in post #2. Keep everyone updated with what you find out from the scope. Post pics of the plugs as you pull them, I bet you'll find one with a bent ground electrode.

    #2 and 4 compression down to 60lbs. gonna be pulling apart soon. Supercharger will be going to Brett and other mods will depend on damage. Hoping the damage is minimal.
    I will update as I figure out what is up.

    UPDATE...motor is apart. From what I am told, the piston rings on the right side were all seized. Bore looks good, piston/combustion chambers look good, no apparent damage to heads/valvetrain. Is there something I need to be looking for to cause the 1 side to sieze? Overheating, injector issues, etc?

    So it seems a clogged cat on the passenger side was a contributing factor. Right side rings seized causing loss of compression. No damage to bores or heads. Being rebuilt with forged rods and pistons, cam kit from Hawks motorsports, Jokerz rebuilt and ported SC/Snout to Ported Gold blade LS7 TB. ID850, TSP headers to x pipe stock mufflers, Airaid CAI. Looking forward to getting it back and seeing what the new numbers will be. Planning and adding a ZL1 lid, reinforced brick, and killer chiller also.

    A melted cat is bad news. these cars just cant take it with the stock cats over ~600-650 at the wheels, and probably are on borrowed time with any mods.
