I have an 06 cobalt and recently my car started to suddenly lose power while driving. It says reduce engine power when this happens. If I turn the car off for a minute it'll go away.


This has nothing to do with the Catalytic converter ! Plugged catalytic converters don't go away after shutting off the vehicle !
This reduced engine power has to do with the
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System
Reduced Engine Power Mode When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
?€¢
Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.


?€¢
Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.


?€¢
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.


?€¢
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:


-
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.


-
Ignore the accelerator pedal input.


?€¢
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

Vehicle was accelerated when tires were off ground and then vehicle died and alarm starts when trying to start, it will try to turn over but no spark


you may have gone past a setting of a sensor and the CPU shut it down .try resetting the CPU with a code reader and read any faults that were recorded as well

My 2004 Ford Explorer engine shuts off while driving


how often does it do this? does the car sputter, **** and stall before turning off? it could be as simple as bad gas, water or condensation in gas tank, up to a blown head gasket. have a professional diagnose it with a check engine code reader, or have Auto Zone do it for free.

Buick Rendezvous Shuts off when accelerating but starts right back up


Hello


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Turns off when going on reverse and when turning the wheel without pressing on the gas pedal


I know this might sound dumb, but it has happened to a lot of people - make sure your floor mat (not even a corner of it) isn't on top of the accelerator pedal. Even the slightest weight can cause the pedal to accelerate enough to be noticeable.
Not dumb, it's a good answer. The floor mat can slip forward (and has) in two of our new vehicles when we were driving on the highway. It had worked its way off the anchors and slipped forward, causing the vehicles to accelerate. I put the gearshift in Neutral, pulled off the highway and that was the problem, both times. I don't think it was on top of the gas pedal, underneath, but still pressing or I guess, pulling the pedal down.

All of these are good answers, but if it's an automatic transmission, it might be normal provided the engine performance is ok. Auto trannies have a torque converter stall speed. I have a 96 Cadillac Fleetwood and it will move on its own.

The power drive light is on my 2001 honda passport and i don't know what it means


it means you pressed the power drive button. it should be by your shifter knobb or on your shifter knobb itself. you should turn it off asap because in the freeway, it makes the transmission downshift to create more power for acceleration. in other words, it lets you accelerate faster on the freeway, just a little bit, but puts more stress on your engine if you dont turn it off after it downshifts. hope this helps, and goodluck.

if its is under warranty, rerurn to dealer with problem, seems like it is not switching from battery to gas correct, you may have a issue that only the dealer can correct with there computors
