car idles low at 550 to 450 up and down,,, never steady .. car has lost power and will not even spin tires, its a 2011 ss v8 with 38000 miles.. checked the maf sensor and replaced i did a fuse pull checked all vac lines and nothing...
car reduced power, idled roughed...in the middle of a 450 mile road trip.
Rough idle. Will not get above 1200 rpm
Car shakes a lot, I believe because it needs new motor mounts and transmission mounts. The car idles low and has sometimes caused the car to stop while at a stop light due to being in drive and on brakes.
stability lights on and engine states reduced speed. Dealer states I need to replace throttle
