When driving down the highway my car will start to kick and my rpms drop and there is nothing behind my gas pedal. Than it stalls. What would cause this?

The first thing I would do is check to see what code's you have. Go to a auto part's store like auto zone and have them scan the car for code's and let me know what the code number's are.

I took it and had it checked for codes and a code for a faulty evap vent seleniod came up but my check engine light wasnt on while this was happening. My check engine light just came on yesterday along with my abs light and my trac off light.

Sound's like something is going on there.A evap vent solenoid code usually doesn't cause the car to stall but anything is possible. But if your check engine light came on since then then you need to have your code's checked again I need the actual code number's that they read from your car not what they say. There are code's that have different meaning's for the same part's. All so if your abs light and trac light are coming on then you might have to take it somewhere besides a auto part's store. Most auto part's store's don't have advanced enough scanner to read those code's. But you can ask them to make sure.
