Powertrain warning light is on - car goes into lump mode, but recovers after sitting for only a few minutes
My car has 150000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hello. If the throttle body is failing then it can cause the vehicle to go into reduced power mode and set a code in the computer. I usually start by scanning the computer for codes. By doing this I can see why the computer is turning on the check engine light. At that point I can see if the problem is the throttle body or something else.
