Why is My Chevy Equinox Saying “Engine Power Reduced”?

This phrase has a couple of different meanings when you see it appear on your dash. It most likely means that your Chevy Equinox is in a “limp mode”, which means that your Equinox won’t accelerate as quickly, and you won’t be getting the peak performance that comes with your vehicle. It’s very likely that it needs a clean throttle body, which requires the expert attention that our technicians are trained for at Bellamy Strickland Chevrolet Buick GMC.

If you have an OBDII reader, you’ll want to plug it into the car’s port near the steering wheel on the door side on most models.
