Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla

Open Question

When driving the engine loses power for a split second

Then it regains power quickly. The car has 133,000 miles. I replaced the plugs and wires thinking it could be a bad wire. Once replaced I looked at the old ones but they looked fine. Also replaced recently was the air filter and PCV valve.

While driving the car loses power for no reason. Rev counter goes to 0 and the yellow light of the key lights up for a split second before the car regains its power and continues to drive

The first thing you need to do is have the system scanned for fault codes, That is the start of the repair process. Best to take it to the dealer.

My 2000 malibu chugs while going down highway 5 miles an hour

If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

Car driven in high water a second later engine loses power and after letting it set overnite it regain power after a couple miles egine loss power again

Obviously some off your ignition component such as your plugs wires got wet. Provided that nothing shorted out, try opening your hood on a sunny day and let everything dry out. You may also try spraying some WD40 on your plug wires as it absorbs moisture.

I have a 1989 Dodge Shadow with 2.5L engine. It will shut down after about 10 minutes of driving it. Then while you are on the side of the road it will start up in a few minutes and go about 1/4 of a mile,...

A common cause for symptoms you describe was a faulty hall effect pick-up plate in distributor. Sits under rotor and has wire coming out side of distributor with round plug on end. I'd replace that.
About $35 at autozone.
