    My s-10 pulls while accelerating..changed fuel filter but still does it. what else could it be?

    • Frankie says:

      A fuel filter would have nothing to do with the truck pulling to one side or the other. You either have a front suspension part gone bad, or a broken motor mount. Put the truck in drive with your foot firmly on the brake pedal and give it some gas. Have someone look at the engine to see if it is moving excessively.

    I have a 2003p1125 GMC Yukon xl with about 143000 miles. We are getting a p1125 code and having reduced engine power. We have replaced the throttle body, app sensor, and wiring to throttle body, but code still comes up and reduced engine power. What else can we do?

    • ProTech says:

      There is another part on your vehicle which controls the functions of the throttle body and communicates with the PCM accordingly. That part is called the TAC module (Throttle Actuator Control). It is located on the firewall. That is what most likely needs to be replaced on your vehicle. It does not require any programming, so it is a part you can replace yourself.

    I just bought 2006 4.8 Siverado and wash the engine yesterday then the Reduced engine light came on, after 15 minutes of driving and restarting then engine it went away.
    Should I worry or was the cause for washing the engine?
    Thanks Robert De Leon

    My 2005 Chevy Equinox while we were driving started showing the battery light, slowly after a lot off more warning lights came. Then my accelerator didn’t work,,then it shut-off. My battery was dead, it was replace since it had warranty, i had the alternator rebuild. Now my car starts but the accelerator moves inside the cabin, but it doesn’t due nothing in the engine.

    I have a 2006 GMC Canyon 4 cylinder engine I changed out the fuel pump once to turn on the truck the engine reduce light came on on the dash and the truck does not have power. I pushed the gas pedal and nothing what else can my truck have it never had a problem til I changed the fuel pump.

    • Billy says:

      It depends on what codes are stored in the computer. Sounds like your truck has a problem in the electronic throttle system. Maybe a bad accelerator position sensor which is part of the gas pedal.

    I have a 04 chevy silverado z71 thought I carefully rinsed my engine now when I drive just a little ways my reduced engine power comes on and the truck accelerates on it’s own until I shut it off is this part of the throttle body system as well?

    I have a 2006 Saturn relay 2 and recently the engine light comes on and a message that say reduce engine speed and the van slows down. What causes this?

  11. Justin says:

    I have a 03 Chevy Silverado z71, I had my reduced engine power come on about a month ago when I started my truck, after shutting the truck off a few times and restarting it it went away and drove just fine. Now I warmed my truck up and when I was ready to go the truck shut off and I have absolutely no power, I ended up getting power back doing nothing to the truck but that lasted like a week, now I have no power and I can’t figure out where the bad connection is or is the issue related to the reduced engine power. Idk, any help with be great.
