for a while my jeep would die when I would drive it for like 30 min but would only die when I would come to a complete stop and would not restart right away. But if you let it sit for a while and then tried again it would turn right over. Well recently I moved and had to drive the vehicle 2 hours away and nothing seemed wrong the whole way but get to the off ramp and at the bottom when I came to a full stop it died so I had to leave it there for like 2 hours to go unload the uhaul. Came back and it had trouble starting at first but eventually started so I started to drive to my new house. I got about 2 miles and started to go up a hill at about 35 and the gas peddle would give and then come back on a pulse. By the time I got to the top of the hill I had already been going 60 and it stopped so I thought I could make it to the house and work on it there. But when I started to go up the next hill it started to do it again but this time a lot more. I got over the hill and the peddle had no go to it and the. It died so I pulled over and realized I had smoke coming from under the hood. So I got out and opened the hood and the smoke seemed to be coming from underneath the car so I walk around the side and see smoke also coming out from behind my rear driver side wheel. I had some one pick me up and went back the next day to try to start it and to no avail. I ended up having to tow it to my house. I have no idea what it could be. I don't have the money right now to take it to a shop but if I could get some ideas of what the problem could be I may be able to fix it with my dad's help.
