Should have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes to verify what it is, but Reduced Engine Power a lot of the time has to do with the Throttle Positioning Sensor. Since it is out front by the alternator, may have disturbed the wires. Common for a wire to break inside the insulation by the connector going into the TPS.
