Reduced engine power!!!!!!

So I was driving today after putting gas in my car, 93 octane only. I was in some traffic and all of a sudden my TC/stabilitrack lights and my abs light comes on an my dash says Reduced Engine Power! So when I get to the red light I quickly shut my engine off and restart! Nothing, so I pull into the next available place an call onstar. They advise me my Fuel rail sensor is giving a code and bc of that the computer disabled TC/stabilitrack, an my ABS! So I drive to the dealer an they tell me its gonna take a lil while to fix, should be done by tomarow! Im not mechanically inclined so I have to wait and see what happened? Anyone have this happen or hear about anything like this? I have 11,076mi on her??

What's a fuel rail sensor? Does that indicate low fuel pressure?

Im with the guys above i would guess bad gas. Had the same thing in my SS. Ran it on the highway till she was empty. filled up at one of my normal stations. ran some fuel cleaner through it and reset the codes with my hypertech. Had the dealer double check everything when they did my last free oil change and she has been running fine since.

That gas station is now on my list of never agains.

This had happen to me.

Had the car at the dealer for almost 2 weeks. Because they had to replace the whole entire wiring under the dash because for some reason they all burnt out.

At first the dealer was trying to blame it on my radar!! Lol

was there a tanker filling up the tanks while you were getting gas or anything?

fuel rail pressure sensor -This is a device that measures the pressure of the fuel that is to be delivered to the fuel injectors. This measurement is used by the engine control computer to determine how long the injectors need to be driven open to deliver a specific amount of fuel.

Sounds like a drop in pressure. Could be ANYWHERE in your fuel system. So it may take a while to find out where.

Angry Engine Power Reduced

I have been having the same problem with 2012 LT2. It's been to the shop 4 times now. 1st time fuel rail sensor, 2nd time Di electric grease, 3rd time fuel pump, and still waiting on the verdict for 4th time. If anyone can help with this please let me know.

I just had this problem last night. It happened right after filling up on gas. When I filled up, I was close to E. I brought it to the dealer today and they said there is a technical bulletin on this but no fix. They told me not to let my gas level get that low and it shouldn't happen. They also said the check engine light would go off after so many driving cycles but couldn't tell me how many. GM is working on it.

Hate to bring up an old topic but I just had this happen to me today. I've had my LS about 3 months now.

Car was driving very sluggish... oh I hated that.
Called Onstar and they said the fuel sensor was giving off an error and might need to be reprogrammed. They recommended I shut the car off for about a min and all the other error lights would go off except the check engine light, which is excatly what happened.

Going to take it to the dealer either Monday or Tuesday.

The llt makes more power with up to 100 octane (based on weather of course).... It is true it runs just fine on 87.
