Engine Performance problem
2003 Cadillac Escalade V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
My truck recently had a loss of power while on a road trip. I slowed down to 55 mph, turned off AC and it was able to drive another 4-5 miles until it shut down completely. I pulled off let it sit for about 20 minutes and started it right back up. Continued about 3- miles and it loss power again. This happened once before about a year ago on the same 8 hour road trip. Towards the end of trip I loss power, however, I pulled off waited and started back up and had not had a problem until now.
Had it towed 200 miles. My mechanic who is not although not a Cadillac dealer said could not find a problem or error code. It has been driving fine around town.
Afraid might happen on a long trip again. Any ideas?
