Question about Cars & Trucks
When driving in heavy traffic, stop start on a hot day,my car starts by sluggish acceleration then after a while it looses all power and I have to wait maybe an hour before I can drive off again. and then it will start the same again. the following day it is fine.
Did the engine overheat and go into limp home mode? That would be my guess.

Hi guys,obviously this could be any number of problems,but the most common ones to cause this is a dirty throttle intake housing,usually a good clean up rectifys this,also check the small vacum hoses for any splits or perishing as this also can cause this problem,hope this helps you's out,Bill.

Most likely the idle air control valve is faulty. But that's just a guess. Does it do the same thing when you turn the steering wheel at a stop. The IAC is suppose to open a little when a load is placed on the engine in order to add more fuel so the air/ fuel ratio stays efficient
