I would check your Catalytic Converter. To do so, get the engine running to normal operating temp. then look underneath the car at the Catalytic Converter - if it is red hot - time to replace it.

Please rate my assistance. Good Luck!

1996 camry lost speedometer and a/c while driving. Put in new battery and alternator, still no change and now car just lost all power while driving . What is wrong with car?

lost speedometer, what does that mean 0mph at 50? ??????
YES, CHECK all fuses first. all cars, for any electric issues.

A./c lost, (ok there are 6 things that cut A/c some are normal)
one is HVAC dash blower fan must blow or AC brain cuts A.C
this prevent ICE up. (normal)
why guess? please stop guessing and throwing parts and cash.
what does lost all power, driving mean.???
lost engine power (cant drive)
or lost all electric power (a prime reason for EFI to die , for lack of 12vdc electric power)
does lights die on the car, at the moment of problems?
Dash cluster , head lights, any lights.
does engine STALL? (0 RPM is stall) 300 RPM is bad idle.
800 RPM is normal hot idle, never less.

if this is just and engine power issue, (cant drive at all ,or only slow or
slow up hills?)O
my car will not move fast,? in any gear? and transmission don't slip
and no DTC scan codes (checked and smart to do first)

I'd be all over fuel pressure. this is a $20 gauge , that must be connected to the fuel rail to read pressure.
28psi is minimum for all cars.
if i knew what engine was in your car, id look yours up has this info.

the ecu can not report wrong fuel pressure, it cant
so is always and issue, with total engine power loss.
so is skipping 60,000 mile FULL TUNEUP's

if you need those charts they are easy to get. for any car.

tell more get more.... regards

Hello, I drive a toyota camry. The last two days, everytime I start my car it will beep 4 times, and then tonight while I was driving home it did it again, only while I was driving. No dash lights on, not...

Beeping can often be a reminder that the car is due for a service, or that there is a fault with the vehicle and it is trying to remind you to visit a service centre. Check your dash for any warning lights or service messages.

1986 camry has no power in drive

Some times that old of a vehicle has the Catalyctic converter get clogged up by its own broken down internal material, and it will make the car do just what you are discribing...Good luck
