You should take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault codes from the computer. Most stores will do it for free. It could be anything from a faulty throttle position sensor to a clogged air intake hose, or dirty air filter.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Anytime the check engine light comes on, you check the computer for trouble codes. The codes will not tell you what to replace, but rather what to check.
Let me know what you find out.

I was driving and my car suddenly died but i still had power now it wont turn over and my lights dim slightly


Based on your description, it sounds like you may have an engine siezure. Is there oil in the crankcase? Was the temperature gauge running high before it stopped? Did the engine seem to be loosing power or any instrument lights come on before it stopped?

Whenever a check engine light comes on it is a sensor sending a trouble code to the cars computer. You need to take it in to a mechanic and have them hook a scanner to the comnputer to pull the code and then they can tell you what the problem is.
Good Luck!

It seems like bad,dirty or loose wire harness connection somewhere in electrical circuit. This is very difficult to find if engine has problem intermittently. One method may resolve is to unplug wire contacts one by one inspect clean and re-plug. Inspect also all fuses if any loose seated, nad fuse case connections and support.
