There are 2 things that can go wrong one cheap and the other around $100-200. The first problem could be the fuel filter if it is getting plugged up it wont allow the fuel to flow through to your engine sufficiently, but at faster speed it will still allow the fuel to flow enough. The other problem could be the fuel pump, this is the more expenive route. This will have the same effect on a car as the fuel filter. If I were you I would try replacing the fuel filter first to see if that made a change, this should only cost you around $5-20.

check the accelarator cable isnt stretched (rev the car from the peddle, then from under the hood and listen for any rev differences) although its just been serviced also check that its had a replacement air filter. this could be restricting air.

Engine runs on when driving along


Sounds like the choke is sticking on, that would also explain the heavy fuel consumption

Sounds like an accelerator cable that is getting stuck in its sheath or linkage under the hood the is sticking. Try pulling up the accelerator pedal when the engine is racing; if it drops down to normal idle, then the above is a good place to start.

Engine cuts out


Maybe when you went into the ditch you partially pinched your fuel line so now your not getting enough fuel to the motor?Crawl up under your car and see if you can see any damage to the fuel lines, or anything else...filter etc.
