There is a safe Mode called "Limp Home" which usually occurs when the engine overheats. If your engine is doing this, then there is either a cause for this or a defective heat switch.
Some engines will make a Code and activate the "Check Engine" light. This style can be checked with a Scanner. If such a light is on in the dash, Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance autoparts will check it free.
If no warning is present, the Water temperature should be checked. There can be reasons for this problem and it will need to be checked for the cause.

My 2002 Impala started knocking while on the freeway. I couldn't try past twenty miles per hour without it knocking again, I put two and a half quarts of gas and it's still knocking!


ok just checking well usaully when it starts knocking that means that either the cam bearings or the crank shaft bearings are already damaged and if the knock is coming from either placemits not good how many miles are on it

Car had ignition coil replaced for 2nd time in a year


The crank sensor is causing the car to die. When it gets hot the resistance builds up and it will not read the crank signal. Then the car will die. When it cool the sensor will read again. You wont get spark if the crank sensor is not reading the ecm doesnt see the signal and will not allow the coil to fire.
