Hi Love. Thanks for contacting us today. On many modern cars, trucks and SUV, there is a reduced power warning light that illuminates typically when the symptoms you are describing occur. If this warning light did not illuminate on your dash over the past few weeks, then it’s probably best to have a professional mechanic come to your location to inspect your vehicle - so they can determine why your car is acting like this. Some of the common reasons for this type of mechanical behavior include a mass air flow sensor, damaged throttle body, clogged or dirty fuel injectors or simply worn out air and fuel filters.
