Happened to my wife twice ( local trips around town ). 1st time car felt like it was going to stall then it was fine ( I drove it no issues ). A week later 2nd time car stalled pulling out of parking space then started right back up but was not running right pull into gas station car running added gas ( car was not low on gas about 1/3 of tank before gas was added to make over 1/2 tank ). Pulled out of gas station she said car had major loss of power even while foot on gas car would only do 5 to 10 mph for about 3 ( no rpm increase she looked the the rpm gauge ) blocks at light car was still not running then it was fine all the way home approx 2 miles. I took car for a ride drove on regular road onto highway did 80 mph got off went onto road with traffic stop & go went up hilly road ( used the autostick & did some shifts 1 thru 4 ) all ok dead stop to 65 mph no issues on 20 min drive. Oil looks great I change it every 3k tranny fluid looks & smells perfect. Things that were done to car was rear brakes, front motor mount ( 4 months ago ). Just change upper & lower radiator hoses & thermostat flushed system & put in new coolant all ok there. Changed the belt. Cleaned the throttle body ( no harsh chemicals ) changed the pulgs with OEM plugs gap of.050 ( old plugs looked perfect every one) did all this about 2 to 3weeks ago. ( Hard rain last night 50mph winds dry under the hood )NO check engine light ever came on.
