1 Answer


Is there a reduced power mode, message? Check the tac/ throttle actuator control. A problem in that system can cause that message. I can ask the general questions, how long since a tune-up, any applicable trouble codes? Yes, temp can make a difference. Generally it runs a little richer on a cold engine. A hot engine, a little leaner. I'm sure others can give better explanation when it comes to temp. good luck
