    thanks for the tip. at this point i'll try anything. weird thing is that it sometimes runs fine. the engine light will be on but no other warnings or reduction power.

    Well this crap is happening to us now :grrrrrr: with our 2007 GMC Acadia (Traction Control/Stabilitrack problem which then triggers the Reduced Engine Power). I noticed some strange bucking at around 1500 rpms last night on the way home and this morning I go out to start it up and it starts but the idle seems off and then I see Reduced power and TC disable etc. **SMH**

    I'm a car guy and can't keep anything stock for long but for some reason I haven't done anything to the Acadia yet since we bought it almost a year ago.

    so it sounds like it could be air intake issues causing this problem? We also have the 3rd row dome light water leak.

    a lose intake could be the problem. Tighten it down

    dropped it off at the GMC dealer last night to get it checked out and hopefully fix the water leak. The service advisor said "Acadia's are known for this" and he also said "how many miles?" and I said "69k" and he said "wow be happy these are the only problems you have". lol that makes me feel good.

    I havent gone to the dealer yet but they called me and said the cause of it was the Throttle body so they are replacing it under warrenty but I am not sure what warrenty they are replacing it under. Is there a 75k or 100k warrenty from GM on this part? Also the passenger airbag is covered under a warrenty. They didnt make it to the water leak but said they would make another appointment with me to get that checked out. So at the moment everything seems to be working out but I am still puzzled on the warrenty part. 1 thing that does blow me is the $110 just for the diagnostics.

    Well I ended up paying nothing to get everything fixed but I did end up paying $223.00 to HOPEFULLY get the common headliner water leak fixed. Sucks I had to pay out of my pocket for a GM mess up.

    so i have been having the same problem off and on in my 07 new body silverado 108k. Had it when i first bought the truck like 3 weeks after i bought it and took it to the dealer and they had never seen the problem before and also by the time i had taken it to them the lights went off and so they couldnt duplicate the problem. that was a year and a half ago and it hadnt had the problem in over a year till bout 2 months ago it did it but i stopped turned the truck off took the key out and then started it back up and it was fine then it did it again a couple weeks ago for 3 days straight off and on and then went away and then started again today. so im going to try the intake and see if i can tighten it better since thats the easiest. But i have a aftermarket Volant intake so i duno if i just didnt tighten it good enough when i put it on. hopefully that fixes it cuz im past the warranty stage so im going to end up paying to get the throttle body replaced and all that other stuff till it gets fixed. will repost with the results

    you might not have to replace to throttle positioning sensors. Did you drive thru snow or lots of water when it happened. Next time hit does pop up the door sill plastic piece and see if those wires and that plug in there has moisture on it. If so put dielectric grease on there and see if that helps. Also dry out any water
