Good day all cady owners,
I am a new owner of a very low mileage hardly used sts 3.6 l di 2008 model with just over 10k miles.
i have had this car for 3 months and it drives like magic, i was surprised with the 6 cyl performance as i used to have sts northstar 95 model years ago. any way today i got REDUCED ENGINE POWER ? HELP PLS THE CAR HAS NO WARRANTY.
The first thing to do is check trouble codes. If you can't limp the thing to AutoZone where they'll check the codes for free you can buy a cheap CAN enabled code reader that will read the engine codes at almost any parts store or Walmart.
If there is a difference between commanded throttle position and actual position it will go to reduced power mode. My CTS used to do it all the time when -40F weather would hit. All I had to do to clear it was shut it off and restart it.
