Dealer only by the sound of it,start changing parts willy nilly and it will cost more in the long run than a fleecing at the dealers.A lot of these newer cars are using encrypted software via an internet connection to the factory,The dealer doesnt evan have the software ,then you need manufacturers only OBDII cable as you ever tried buying a connector with all 16 pins in it.Well as for these plug in weekend mechanic code readers ,save your money because although they may work on a 96 vehicle anything from 2007 starting with renault they will show the wrong code because thats the idea.This is to stop general mechanics from working ,dealer only .So if your kid wants to be a mechanic then put him off unless you can afford to buy him a dealership,because this line of work is becoming a dinasaur and obsolete like a valve radio.

Your friend could be right. Normally if you have a cylinder miss or a problem with the transmission you would get a check engine light and a trouble code. Low fuel pressure may not show up like that.
You may want to check fuel pressure at idle and on the road.

Try replacing the IAC ( idle air control). They can cause the hesitations and can also cause the vehicles ilde to jump up and down. Also check for any loose vaccuum lines.

My 2009 chevy impala service traction light came on and then it said engine speed reduced

Have the codes checked. But you probably lost one of the wheel sensors. This will pop the light. When the ECM detects a wheel not move as fast as the others, it sets the light.
