Chevy Cobalt ENG PWR REDUCED

Asked by Feb 22, 2016 at 09:16 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey there,
I have a 2009 Chevy Cobalt bought used a year ago from a
dealership near me. It has about 81,000 miles on it and just
recently started messing up. My car will start heating up to
about 200F-206F when idle. The normal running temp I had
logged before all this was 190F. Then whenever I start
moving from a standstill, my car will get thrown into limp
mode with ENG PWR REDUCES message on readout . I
have no acceleration at all at that point. Does anyone know
what could be causing this? Taking it to Autozone
tomorrow to get codes. Just thought I'd ask.
