I think i have a solution or a good possibility. My 2001 Nissan GXE manual
transmission went from 75 mph. after we stopped and started the car back
up it would only go to 20 mph. After a week at a stumped mechanics
we took it to the dealer for a better computer read out. It is the TPS
throttle position sensor. It was not communicating to the computer and that
is why the first mechanic was not drawing anything faulty off the codes in
the first place. Please call if necessary. 620-960-1205.

What would cause my car to cut off while driving?

Sounds like a power relay or breaker that is getting weak. Over time electrical components break down from heat. Without having a schematic cant tell you where to look!

Fibrates at 55 to 60 mph

1) Have vehicle checked by a mechanic (with a tire balance machine) for proper balance & alignment of all 4 tires.

2) Also, check drive train underneath for a loose "universal joint" (there should 1 to 3 of them). If they're loose or wobbly, they need to be replaced. No more than 30 mins per joint & $8-10 each.

I would really have that exhaust checked again, as well as have mechanic put fuel pressure gauge on & drive it up to that speed and see what happens fuel pressure wise. With exhaust, it's not only cat converter that could be causing reduced flow.
