asked by on

My truck keeps losing power and says engine power reduced and another message saying traction control off and stability tract off all at the same time. What can be wrong

My car has 230000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You may have problem with the transmission or throttle control and will need to have the computer tested for fault codes that will point to the possible fault and lead to further testing to pinpoint the cause. You may have a defective speed sensor or throttle position sensor.
