    I have very similar problem. Car goes well, then loses power (BUT engine still running) usually when you let your foot off the acceleration pedal, then if you go to a lower gear or shift around a bit it works fine again. Then it might repeat this randomly. My garage tried the exhaust-gas-recycle valve also to no effect. The oil filter is new - but I think there is another "inner" oil filter??? Anyone with any ideas of how to solve it would be appreciated.

I have a 1993 Toyota Celica ST, 1.6. A few days ago my car begun losing power and ended up turning off. I tried starting again after letting it sit and it would make it down the road a few miles before...

To test a altinator the easy way without special tools, start the car, remove the negative battery cable. If it stays running, the altinator is good. I had the same type of problems. It's probably your ignition coil/coils going bad. Try replacing it and cleaning inside distributer cap & rotor.

Engine cuts out driving down the highway but will start right up again. Check engine light does not come on

HOW MANY MILES? Where/ how has vehicle been driven: (loads of miles in in dusty conditions?) have you checked for a plugged fuel filter? or tested the fuel pump? inspected wiring to the fuel pump? how about the gas cap -- seriously! there could be a vapor lock going on... is this random or is there some pattern to when it cuts out? (say after so many miles etc?)
