Reduced power light


I suggest you tell us what this mystery vehicle is so we can try to help. But from what you described i would start by checking fuel pressure at the fuel rail. And changing the fuel filter.

sounds like it could be a coil issue after its been sitting for awhile it starts again correct? when its running the coil will warm up and if there is a small crack in it anywhere it will seperate and loose its contact therefore interupting the spark for the engine and it will die. or it could be a bad fuel pump or even cheeper yet check the fuel filter.

Besides the obvious: checking your alternator/charging system. If the check engine light is not on, or it comes on, and after awhile it comes off, then a couple of hours or days later it comes on again it might the crankshaft sensor. It happened to me, and it was a pain in the neck to diagnose as the check engine light had turned off and the computer wouldn't read any codes to diagnose the problem. My mechanic was trained by Mopar/Jeep, so he immediately knew what was happening.

If it is a dead or shorted battery, when the RPM's are up the vehicle will run, and you might notice a loss on power. Once the engine goes to idle and the RPM's come down the engine will die, as there is not sufficient electrical power generated by the alternator to supply the engine. A bad alternator will cause battery problems.

Car dies when driving,check engine light comes on.


There is a good chance it could be your fuel pump , however if the check engine light is coming on and the dealer cant tell you what is wrong , try a different dealer or another shop. Second opinions never hurt.
