Default 2010 Equinox problems.

I bought a 2010 Chevy Equinox approx 2 1/2 months ago. Today at 530am I started the engine to go to work, put the car in reverse & the engine light came on, along with service stabilitrak message. I put the car in drive and hit the gas i got a new message that said reduced engine power and I lost all power in the engine. The car completely stalled. It's been towed to the nearest Chevy dealer and I'm anxiously awaiting their call. We have an extended warranty so I'm praying whatever this is will be covered. Seeing that I've only had the vehicle for not even 3 months I sure hope it would be covered.

My guess is the throttle body is overwhelmed with carbon.

This happened to us in our Acadia, turned out to be a stuck open thermostat. I know makes no sense but that fixed it.
