Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

The reduced performance message will come on when the engine controller sees a failure that will affect driveability and sets fault codes. The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see what fault codes are stored and then testing can be done from there.

Do you have the P code numbers that are currently setting?
