This could be caused by a number of things.. one could be dirty fuel filter. Another are problems with electrical, like erratic idling or spark plugs not igniting correctly.

The Engine runs well but at times it throtlles as if it the engine is cutting off, but it just continues on....

look for worn / broken wires in the harness to the cam / crank sensors as they may be loosing signal to the ECM which cuts off power
run the fault codes to check for reports

I have a toyota corolla car. It was loosing power and the engine check light came on then the car cut off. After a few minutes it started back but cut off again and it just stalled after that.

You need to get the check engine code to point you in the right direction. Common reasons are bad: fuel pumps, injectors fuel regulators distributors igniters and the cpu

Randomly looses power, checked hoses, didn't appear to be any loose. Was told to put premiun gas in, and an engine cleaner that you put in the gas tank.....seems a little better.....but still 'cuts out'

check the turbo wastegate, if it overboosts the ecu reduces or cuts fuel not to do any damage in the engine. I read this and after a while i saw your problem and thought that this was the problem.

If the car was sitting for that long with the battery connected there is probably corrosion at many if not most of the connections. Time must be taken to loosen, clean then reconnect these. There is a main ground strap from battery to engine, then there should be one from engine to body. This should be above engine along firewall. simply finding connectors on the wire harness and wiggling them around should tell you if they are loose from sitting

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
