Sounds like overdrive or the torque converter is going out. The torque converter goes into lock up then the trans goes into overdrive. Your owners manual should have a diagram of the engine compartment showing the dipstick. Is the check engine light on ?
as your description is a little uncertain that is why the answer are a little mixed
however the basis of the description indicates a battery problem , probably loose/dirty battery terminals or loose /dirty ground wire to the engine
check the ground wire condition
If you mean a 100 mph, then that is perfectly normal. They are making engines with governors inside so a person cant try to outrun the police. Mine will get up to 100 and lose all engine power till the speed drops back down to 97. Then the engine kicks back in again.
If your driving in your car and it suddenly dies for no reason. That
usually means that the air bag kill switch stopped working. Some kind
of safety device to kill the engine.
This is what happened to me I was driving in my car home from work and everything is perfect one minute and then the car DIES!!! The next morning took it to my mechanic and he looked under the hood for 4 hours and found nothing. It wasn't doing it that day. I was insisting that my car was not working properly and the mechanic said he found nothing in the diagnosis. Then I was leaving and the darn air bag light came on. I went back in to the garage that minute. He took the car back in and found the problem within one hour. It was the darn air bag switch.
Check the Distributor Cap and Rotor. Check Spark Plugs and wires. Replace if necessary.
solution three: Check Air filter and fuel filter. Replace if necessary.
This is the most expensive solution but if all else fails Change the Control Computer. Garage will charge around $500.
