Question about Cars & Trucks
This is a symptom of the on board computer detecting an issue with the engine / operability. It has placed the engine in limp or reduced power mode to minimize potential damage. You may see a check engine or service engine soon indication on the dash with this problem. Some auto parts stores can scan the car's computer to get the code(s) causing the the reduced power mode. Many times, this issue needs to be addressed by a mechanic however.

this is one of two things, first theres a problem with the engine , the way it runs its loosing power or if the wheels spin and the computer picks it up then it will reduce the power to avoid wheels from slippping, this is like when driving in the snow, now if the check engine light is coming on with this message then you have a problem and the first thing to do would be to have the codes pulled and see what codes are stored. what happens is the computer sees a problem and turns on the light and stores a code for that problem. for example there may be a code that reads po300 multiple misfires. this code would mean the computer has seen the motor misfiring and with some testing the problem can be found. there are many auot part stores that will scxan the computer for free and give you a read out with the code. if you get the codes i can help you further, have a good day.
