Cherry red? is the car tuned? as in racing-tuned? Maybe is the catalyst that needs replacementdue to clogging, or the oxygen sensor not working properly, sending a richer mix of fuel than a lean one, causing overheating. Loss of power is because of the overheating. Check the engine temp, and fluids constantly and fix it ASAP. This behavior could lead to athermal exhaustion of the head, fouling fire in chambers, and bending valves, As I said, repair ASAP.

Before you do anything make sure your battery cables are clean and tight. Loose cables can do this as well. If that's not the problem
sounds like your starter is drawing too much power and is on it's way out. Could cause a fire Better get it fixed.

when it is acting like it does not want to start, have someone or your self go to the battery and feel the red wire, if it is getting hot, you have a loose connection. check your hot and ground connetions.
