Could be sensor in gas pedal or throttle body , or wiring or computer or etc... etc.... Don't go by the problem this vehicle has ,could be a number of other thing's .

SOURCE: Service Stabilitrak-Reduced Engine Power

the engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.

the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..

your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.

SOURCE: We keep getting a message stabilitrak off, service

I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM BUT MINE ONLY COMES ON WHEN I AM IN GEAR, IDLEING AT A STOPLIGHT OR IN A DRIVE THRU. TOOK IT TO GM AND THEY ARE TELLING ME IT IS A "P0300 AND P0301" CODES WHICH SAYS IT A VALVE TRAIN MIS-FIRE ( TO FIX IT IS A 2000.00 HEAD JOB) AND THAT IS WHY THE STABILITRAK AND ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON!!! IN MY RESEARCH SO FAR I HAVE FOUND NOTHING THAT TIES THE TWO TOGETHER.
I HAVE 102,000 MILES ON MINE AND IT RUNS PERFECT AND MPG IS THE SAME AS THE DAY I GOT IT. I WILL KEEP YOU UP ON WHAT FURTHER I FIND. I AM NOW IN CONTACT WITH THE GM DISTRICT SUPERVISOR.

What is causing it to sputter when i first accelerate


Take the vehicle to an Autozone or Advance or Oreillys for a free diagnostic as long as the "check light" is on. This will give you one or more possible causes for the problem.

When my car nissan xterra is warmed the engine shut off


I have a customer with a 2000 Nissan Xterra 3.3 liter V6 with 180k miles. He stated that while driving on the highway the vehicle is fine. Once he exits the highway and drove on surface streets the engine stumbles, sputters and shuts down when he stops. The fuel pump is located under the right side rear seat. I removed the inspection cover to view the electrical connections. No problem there. I drove the vehicle for approx 20 minutes and it hesitated a little but not enough for me to come to a good conclusion. I needed the engine to heat up some more so I drove to Panda Express for lunch. I got my lunch to go, return to the vehicle and started the engine to eat while the engine idled. After my lunch was over I drove back to my customer's house. On the way God bless me with what I was searching for...the engine started to sputter. To shorten this story I replaced the distributor with a brand new assembly from AutoZone($233.65). Once I removed the factory distributor I spun it by hand and that's when I could feel that bearings were rough & worn.
Problem solved and my customer is happy.
