Customer Question

JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: It's dangerous because it's happening on the highway at high speed I have to stop pull over turn it off turn it back on what's the problem
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well when it happens it's pretty steady I mash the accelerator and I have no power

Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

Start by checking your fuel pressure and volume with a gauge, you may have a plugged filter or bad fuel pump.

Thanks, Ron
