CHEVROLET IMPALA ENGINE PROBLEM

2007 Chevrolet Impala • 110,000 miles

Daughter was driving car and said engine light came on then the message said "engine power reduced". Then she said it was like she could barely go 60 mph.

Have the computer scanned to identify where the problem came from. Ask if the engine was overheating or anything, other than the reduced power, occurred.

That is going to be a problem with the "drive by wire" electronic throttle system. The first step will be to read codes but you will need some expensive equipment to get a final diagnosis.
