NO POWER

My 99 GMC suburban has no power. If you push the gas pedal down it will not go. If you let up, it will accelerate slowly. The codes that came up are P0131 and P1870. Where would I start?

Sounds like a transmission slipping problem. Check level and condition of the fluid if it continues get it pressure tested.

Also check and test the throttle position sensor

I forgot to mention that when it's cold outside, it runs good. Do you think it could be the O2 sensor?

Ok, I know it's been awhile. I changed the transmission and it ran ok for a month or so. Now, it is losing power again. Exactly the same way. New throttle position sensor, MAf sensor. Any ideas?
