Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada

1 Answer

Got up this morning and started my 2004 olds bravada to see the ''reduced engine power'' light on and the ''service engine soon'' light on! Had just got a full tank of gas from Safeway, so thinking it was the fuel, slowly made my way to Auto Zone for some fuel additive. Runs a little better, but almost backfiring, and will not rev over 2000 RPMs!! How do I know if the fuel filter or fuel pump need to be replaced?

Is the check engine light on also? Your bravada is in limp mode (it is restricted to 2k rpm to protect the engine from damage, due to a problem), something is going on, so go back to auto zone and have them check for any codes (free service). They can tell you what the codes mean and suggest what you should do. If you have questions, post them here with the code #'s.

    Did they say why??? Check another parts store, I don't understand why they can't/wouldn't check it.

You need to have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes.
Service engine soon is the same as Check engine on other vehicles.
See your owners manual page 2-63 for details.

You need to get the fault codes read to determine where the problem is that set the SES light. Autozone will scan your car at no charge. At some point you will need to get a mechanic involved to further diagnose the codes.

Service engine soon light, service light, reduce power etc.


It is most likely the Throttle Position Sensor has gone bad. But if the check engine light is on, the only way to tell exact problem, is to have a scanner placed on the vehicle to have the codes read.
