This has happened only couple of times since yesterday night. As I was driving my vehicle all sudden my RPM'S went to zero and my speed started to decrease, I went to put more effort on my gas pedal and my gas pedal was not working, not giving any power to the engine. After a few seconds it kicked back on.
I have tried researching it but have had no luck finding anything.
Do you
have the same problem?

(Teaching hat on) Fuel injected vehicles have throttle pedals. When you press it, you give it more air.

(Mechanic's hat on) Is the Check Engine Light on? Take it to a shop that will scan codes for free and have them do a deep scan for both hard and soft codes. Without more information, I'd have to say it sounds like your fuel pump is going or the ignition module.

Nope no check engine light on since I replaced the coils and spark plugs, and then my belts. Since then I haven't had any issues and no check engine light. My ABS light comes on every once in awhile but that's the only light ive seen.
Thank You
