These are classic symptoms of an O2 sensor.Go to autozone and ask them to read the engine code. They will tell you what is wrong more conclusively.

I have a 2008 Chevy Impala. It has recently been acting up. It feels like it is losing power then the display says "reduced engine power". The car can't get out of its own way. It feels like it is doing a...


The check engine light is telling you that there is a problem with the engine. As to it losing power it sounds as if the computer is putting it into limp home mode which is only about 30 mph or less. You need to put a scanner on the car and see the codes it is showing that will tell you what to do next. The check engine light should never be on unless there is a problem with the engine.

Car suddenly feels like its going to stall when driving it


If this is a car lot purchase, they should have at least a 30 Day guarantee. You can get FREE help at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys parts stores as they give free scans to interpret the Code for the wrench light.

The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I need help badly.


Good Day,

The shaking can be caused by a bad motor mount, but could also be caused from the engine when it is idle'ing low and about to stall. The motor mount would also shake the car under braking, so if is doesn't shake whiIe your braking it's probably not motor mount, Is your check engine light? The idle air is another possibilty among other things. I can assist further but I need to know which engine you have the 4 cyl 2.0L or 6.0 cyl 2.5L?

Let me know about the check engine light aswell.

Hope this helps
