Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating.

My immediate suspicion is the throttle body. Do you get a reduced power message?

Have you stopped and had the codes read?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What is a reduced power message and how and where do I read that? Have not had codes read as they want money for that.
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

You can get the codes checked for free at most parts stores. The dash may have a message that says reduced engine power.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
K, no message on dashboard and will let you know what code we get.
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

OK

The light reads service traction???
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

Service traction could be a throttle body issue. Can you have the chassis codes read?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Will do and thank you.

Let me know results

Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

It has been a couple of days since I have heard from you. Do you still need assistance? I have also noticed that I have not received a rating from you. If for some reason you question did not get answered please reply. I am only compensated for my time when you leave a positive rating. Your understanding is appreciated.
