I started the car and off I go, 5 minutes later while accelerating on the 4th gear, the car gradually losses power and stalled. Previously, it happen like once a month but for the past three days it happen once a day. Before this I can start the car again after waiting about 5-10 mins. However last night the car would start but immediately dies off and stayed like that for one hour. I was only able to get the car running this morning. I would be really greatful if I can get help from here. Cheers!
