Slippery road light goes on on dash and car coasts to a halt. Three times today, driving in the city, car warmed up and full tank. All of a sudden the steering column stiffens up and I realize that the engine is not getting any gas when I press the accelerator.

The yellow light warning of icy roads goes on (usually this means that the brakes will auto-pump), and then I try to coast safely to a halt. I put the car in park, turn off the motor, and thirty seconds later am able to start up again no problem. There has been no warning of anything or any other signs of trouble.

Try this first..... it may be just a dirty throttle plate if not check fuel pressure with a gauge.
