Just as I reached my driveway, my car maintained power, but failed to accelerate. I coasted into my driveway. Now when I crank, it starts fine. However I press the accelerator the engine doesn't rev. After approx 30 seconds, the engine will cut off. AC and radio continue to play and function.

Do you
have the same problem?

Do you have a check engine light?

Check the exhaust for restriction and also the TPS and MAP sensors-start here

Check engine comes on for approx 30 seconds at start up. It goes off before engine turns off.
