for some unknown reason i have total loss of power even with a full tune up after 40 miles per hour cant maintain speeds on highway slows down going up a slight incline no one can find the issue this could be it
Uneven acceleration at highway speeds
At high speed, the engine shuts down and the check engine light comes on.
Going highway speeds it looses power and if I make a left turn with less that half a tank of gas the engine turns off.
