I have a 98 honda civic. This morning on my way to work, while waiting at a traffic light, engine just turned off by itself. I couldn't restart it right after; had to push it to the curb. But only after a few minutes, I could start it, then I drove to work (trip from home to work is only 5 miles) Now I recall something unusual happened earlier when I was driving, RPM suddenly went up and then dropped right away, while my foot was as usual on the gas pedal.
What could be the problem? Do I need to take it to the mechanics ASAP?
