I had a similar situation and after some research, I discovered it was doing what many referred to as "Phantom Stalling" It would only happen once in a while and when I wanted the mechanic to see it, it never happened for him.
Keep an eye every so often on your RPM gauge (beside the speedometer) and see if it cuts out completely and does not move when you speed up (shows 0 even though your still in in drive and moving). Mine would do that and after a few minutes the car would stall and I would have a hard time starting it back up.
What I found out was that my "Crankshaft sensor" had gone bad. I picked up a new one at AutoZone and had the mechanic replace it.
My car has not stalled since Ive had the sensor replaced and I found that when I was ideling, the idle was a lot smoother than befor.
Hope this helps you.

Have your head gasket checked you may have a small tear or hole in it allowing coolant/water into your engine internals. This smoke and power loss probably also happens at highway speeds yet is not noticed due to cars momentum
