Missing and reduce power don't run over 30 miles


Check your cat. converter on the exhaust. Start engine and using a rag (so you don't burn yourself) block the tailpipe and how much pressure is coming out. If it seems to take some time to build up the converter could be plugged. Next disconnect the exhaust at the engine tie up the exhaust so it won't drag and road test. If the converter is bad the engine will run normal if still runs the same then you will need the electronics checked out.

Stalling no codes after car sits for hours


STALLING IS USUALLY, CONTAMINANTS IN THE FUEL. CHANGE UR BRAND OF GAS, TEXACO FOR SHELL....PROBABLY A BAD BATCH. FILL THE TANK UP AND ADD A GOOD QUALITY GAS TREATMENT, LIKE STP. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE BOTTLE. ALSO A PLUGGED FUEL FILTER. THE FUEL FILTER IS PROBABLY ATTACHED TO THE FUEL PUMP INSIDE THE GAS TANK. IF THATS THE CASE, ITS A TRIP TO THE MECHANIC.

Reduced power code comes up and my truck stalls.


I had the same problem, and the solution was cleaning the throttle body, it does need to be completely removed to be cleaned thoroughly. I just used some brake cleaner on a rag to clean off all the carbon deposits. A friend of mine who is a dealer tech had only seen this trouble code once, and this was the solution. So far, my light has not come back on and the truck is running alot better at idle.

Reduced Power, Emissions Light is on


when weather warms up a bit run engine at 3500rpm and leave it for about 10mins this should clear the cat out,if the cat runs cold it will clog up reducing the power of the engine
