SOURCE: Truck losing power and service engine soon light on

Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.

SOURCE: The car loses power at a certain point while

What your saying is someone put the problem
in your vehicle
Take it back

You never replace parts in the hope of solving
any issues
You diagnose all check light issues first,
find cause of the system that set the light and repair
Then continue with any other drivability issues

In most of these cases, a repair shop doesn't
know why your there
Partly your fault and partly theirs
So you get plugs you may need and wires that never
fail, and you still have the same problem

You don't want to be there or trust them, they don't
want to discuss much, which is a long standing
half century of poor business practices.

What I'am saying, is they have to diagnose the initial
drivability issue, that customer has,not throw parts at it

You still have a check light on
In my world it is inconceivable you could
leave a repair shop in that condition

My Chevy Tahoe has no power and cant get up past 40 mph without starting to lose power, could it be Mass air flow sensor?

Possibly, but it sounds more likely a catalytic converter may need replacing or fuel filter maybe clogged

Loses power shuts off and blinking engine light

Fuel pump may be giving out or fuel filter is clogged or if your car has a regulator, that too may be going bad. Check all three or have someone do it for you.

Blinking engine light losing power

this light is blinking to let you know the engine has a cylinder mis fire, have the system tested for the fault code that tells u which cylinder is causing the light to blink. AAmco transmission does this code test for free, so does Kragen Auto and Autozone.
