Engine loses power and dies while on the highway

While driving on long trips on the highway the car seems to lose power, bog down and die. Then after sitting a few minutes it may start back up and run fine for hours. The problem is now more frequent as the duration of the trip mounts.

High idle in park pontiac 04 grand am


Do you have a place where they can check the engine for contamination? Mine had a similar problem it would die after slowing down at the junction, Ask your mechanic to clean the engine and also check the throttle sensor and it will be good as new.

Good luck

My brake light and battery light comes on and my car seems like its losing power but the lights are not on steady is this an altenator issue?


Sounds like your alternator is not charging. Several reasons: Alternator belt is off or slipping, batter is going out, alternator is not producing power. Any one of these problems will you stranded very soon. You will have not power to fire the engine and it will die even while driving down the highway. Do you have an ampmeter on your dash or just a light? If you have an amp meter is will slowly creep downward as you drive, when it gets down to about 8 or 9 volts your car won't start the next time you get in it. If it goes below 8 it may stop running while you are driving. If you are near an autozone or pep boy store they can check it for free, but caution, you have very little run time left before battery dies completely.

Head lights dimming and losing power while driving


Next time this happens, pull over and unscrew the gas cap. The vent may be clogged.

Otherwise, your catalytic converter may be failing. It can also clog and hinder engine exhaust.

Good luck !
