    I recently filled up my tank in Costco and started driving. I felt that the horse power of my car has gone down a lot. I drove it for a day and my check engine light came on.
    I googled the issue and there were suggestions to tighten the fuel tank cap, which I did last night. As of this morning, the check engine light is still on and the horsepower of the car still feels lower than what it used to be.

    Today I tried driving on a motorway and the car struggled to reach 70. With the accelerator fully pressed, it still can't go any faster. From time to time it keeps getting bursts of power. Also I noticed that cruise control doesn't work anymore.

    Is this something to worry about or will go away by itself?

    I read the engine fault codes with my vgate scanner and got the below faults.

    01032
    01027

    I have reset the light, but the performance is still same. Can someone help with what these codes mean?

    I got an appointment booked in a local garage to replace the EGR valve now. While at it, should I be looking at replacing anything else? My odometer is at 155K miles now.
    I recently replaced the timing belt and alternator pulley.
