It’s great that your Chevy has stayed in good condition, but when is the last time your car had a tune-up or an oil change? A 2011 Chevrolet Equinox engine power reduced signal on the dashboard usually means a flow issue with air or fuel to the engine.
Here are a few more possibilities:
- Old air filter
- Need an oil change
- Low fuel
- Coolant temperature is too high
- Circut issues
- Obstructed fuel line
And these are just to name a few! When you get this warning light, it is best to take your vehicle to the mechanic for a look-over. It could be something simple, but if ignored, it could become a severe issue.
