"ENGINE POWER IS REDUCED" Error Code..?
I have a 2008 Chevy Impala LS with 146K miles on it. This morning was the first time this happened to me... I was on the highway on my way to work and got this error message. I have little to no acceleration power anywhere whether it be on the highway or municipal roads. I also noticed that my transmission is banging really bad when I accelerate to ANY degree not just on the highway. It is specifically noticeable when coming through a stop light from a complete stop seems like every time the car would shift the transmission is banging I can feel it through the floor of my car. I'm not sure if this is at all related to the "Engine Reduce Power" message I got earlier but I didn't have any issues with the car until that message came up this morning. I was able to keep ,my car at 70 on the highway this morning only because I was at that speed when I got this error message and had enough power to keep myself going at the same speed. However, I know I wont have the same luck this afternoon when I leave and will most likely (would be the smart thing to do) call a ride to get me home tonight
