I drove into the nearest small town today, on mostly straight roads at B
50-60mph. I made a few stops at stores and the bank, then started off for
B After the car had been sitting for probably an hour, it started great. I
pulled B away onto the highway, got up to cruising speed and then there was a
sudden loss B of power. It was missing (but not "sharply", suggesting to me
that it's a fuel B problem and not ignition). Applying more throttle slowed
the car even more, B applying less did the same. There was one throttle
position where the vehicle B would maintain about 25mph, but running rough.
Eventually, it lost more and more B power and finally the engine stalled.
I let the engine sit maybe 30 seconds and tried to start it. It cranked B
over for a longer time than usual before it fired, but when it started it ran
perfectly. I drove away and managed to get about a mile down the road
before the B sudden power loss and rough running came in again. This time I
able to nurse B it along at 50mph (it's a flat road) as long as I kept it out
of overdrive. B Eventually, same thing; lost power despite my playing with the
throttle inputs, B and eventually died. This time I left it a minute before
starting. It started B almost immediately and ran fine, but it was a repeat
of the same scenario B several times until I got home.
I have done no diagnosis yet, so I could be wasting everyone's time. B
However, if anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Maybe a bad B
