    Just curious to see what happened to your vehicle, I started having same problems with mine, but before I start spending on it I rather just trade it in.

    Hopefully your car is fixed now...

    2011 Chevy Traverse:
    Stabilitrak/Traction control/Check Engine Light/Loss of power
    You probably have read lots and lots of blogs/forums on the internet on this issue and are not sure what the problem it is or what to throw the money at.

    In most cases it is the Throttle Body.

    Do NOT buy or have installed the factory OEM part. Why would you install the same part that was giving you this headache?

    The gear can go bad on these and the throttle body can intermittently land in a place that the computer disagrees with and that will send codes. Most often throttle position sensor but it also will give phantom codes like stabilitrak, traction control and...

    It is a terrible design with that oil and carbon build up in the throttle body. The fix is more often than not the bad throttle body. I would try replacing it before you panic and want to trade it in. It's under $200.00 and worth your gamble. If it happens again, maybe ditch it??
