Every time I approach a stop sign or a stop light my car turns off. When I first drive it for like the first hour or so the car will drive normally. But afterwards it begins to turn off every single time it comes to a stop. I do not know if this is related, but it also stops accelerating when it reaches sixty miles per hour. It will still rev up but it wont accelerate.
Do you

If it revs at sixty mph but does not go anywhere have a transmission professional check fluid level and for a transmission problem. He can scan it. For the stalling clean throttle plate on both sides and IAC hole with choke cleaner they get gummy and do that.
