Message ' Reduced engine performance'

While driving at city speed about 40 miles per hour, suddenly i noticed a lost of power. The car was running fine except it has no power when i try to accelerate. I noticed the message 'reduced engine performance' was on. I drove it to a shop and left it there. Start the car a few times without any problems although the message 'reduced engine performance' remains there. My car is a 2004 S60 2.5T
Any idea ? ThankYou

Tip

Save Money on Gas/Petrol


  1. Avoid idling. While idling, your car gets exactly 0 miles per gallon while starting the car uses the same amount as idling for 6 seconds. Park your car and go into the restaurant rather than idling in the drive-through. Idling with the air conditioning on also uses extra fuel. Also, avoid going so fast that you have to brake for someone. Whenever you brake, you waste the gas it took to get going that fast.
  2. Drive at a consistent speed. Avoid quick acceleration and hard braking. Cruise control will keep you at a constant speed, even when going up and down hills.
  3. Avoid stops. If approaching a red light, see if you can slow down enough to avoid having to actually stop (because you reach the light after it is green). Speeding up from 5 or 10 miles per hour will be easier on the gas than starting from full stop.
  4. Anticipate the stop signs and lights. Look far ahead; get to know your usual routes. You can let up on the gas earlier. Coasting to a stop will save the gasoline you would otherwise use maintaining your speed longer. If it just gets you to the end of a line of cars at a red light or a stop sign a few seconds later, it won't add any time to your trip. Ditto for coasting to lose speed before a highway off-ramp: if it means you catch up with that truck halfway around the curve instead of at the beginning, you haven't lost any time. In many cities, if you know the streets well, you can time the lights and maintain the appropriate speed to hit all green lights. Usually this is about 35 to 40 MPH.
  5. Slow down. Air resistance goes up as the square of velocity. The power consumed to overcome that air resistance goes up as the cube of the velocity. Rolling resistance is the dominant force below about 40 mph. Above that, every mph costs you mileage. Go as slow as traffic and your schedule will allow. Drive under 60-65 since air grows exponentially denser, in the aerodynamic sense, the faster we drive. To be precise, the most efficient speed is your car's minimum speed in it's highest gear, since this provides the best "speed per RPM" ratio. This is usually about 45 to 55 miles per hour.
  6. Use A/C only on the highway. At lower speeds, open the windows. This increased the drag and reduces fuel efficiency, but not as much as the AC at low speeds (35-40 mph). The air con - when used a lot - is known to use up about 8% of the fuel you put into your car.

I changed the spark plugs and wires and oil change and fuel filter after getting a new motor that has 100.000 miles . It drives good in city but i noticed that now when u are picking up speed to get on the...


run the fault codes . At the speed you mention and by letting of the power I suspect that it is an automatic transmission and it is shifting into over drive. It will do it again if you accelerate as it will be shifting out of OD

WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM WITH MY 2000 GMC YOKON XL WHEN A REDUCED ENGINE POWER MESSAGE COMES ON THE MESSAGE CENTER


A sensor within the car's computer system has detected a possibly major problem. The system then puts the engine into "limp mode" so that it can be driven to a repair station. Driving in this condition will only increase the damage. Highly recommend you take to reputable mechanic immediately for computer diagnostic.

What does the message "engine power reduced" mean on a 2011 GMC Terrain?


It means the PCM has seen a problem with your engine running and has reduced the power for your safety. You need to bring your vehicle in to someone with a scan tool to read your trouble codes so they can look in the right direction to repair the non-performing part.

98 FORD EXPEDITION ACCELERATION ISSUES


Do you have a check engine light blinking when this problem occurs? I assume you do because if it is missing and sputtering like you say the engine control computer would detect that and turn on the check engine light. Next step is to have the systems fault codes read through the diagnostic port under the dash in front of the driver, Autozone and others does this test for free.

Engine Malfunction Light...drives at reduced speed...best 40kmph


Oh you can drive it, but drive it to the shop and have the EGR(Exhaust Gas Recirculation)valve replaced. That is what's causing your lack of power. It has to work in conjunction with all other emission control systems and once it' goes bad the engine will have no power but seams to work fine otherwise. Change the EGR valve.
