A friend had a similar problem, needed to have her fuel system (injectors too) cleaned. Maybe also think about having an auto parts store plug into it and see if any trouble codes pop up, if you could do that, a trouble code would be alot more helpful in figuring out whats wrong.

GMC 2500 Diesel, reduced engine power??


Just my 2 bits, go through a spring cleaning checklist. Plugs could be fouled up, fuel could be contaminated, you already did the filters. Do you have it chipped or programed? Change the exhaust lately? Do you have the code number? Autozone will scan it for you for free, tell you the code number. Again, just my 2 bits.

Truck engine slows to idle. reduced engine power reads across instrument panel and engine light comes on. turn engine off for a few seconds and engine will run fine for a while.


This is the beginning of the bad Crank Shaft Sensor. The engine can die any time during the run, and not start until 2 hours later.
Run a diagnose with a scan tool to find out what the engine code is to confirm. Good luck.

Why does my tahoe keep displaying reduced engine power? The drivetrain and traction control lights also came on.


There is a service bulletin for this concern.The number is 07-06-04-019A.It has to do with the body harness instrument panel connector.It is on the left hand kick panel area inside the instrument panel.You should have the codes checked.You will probably have a P 2138 code.This is for the accelerator pedal position sensor 1 and 2 correlation.Hope this helps.
