While driving on the highway, or stuck in traffic, the car will suddenly loose power, slows and the fuel guage drops to "empty" in just a few seconds. If it stays running, it will come back up but will not get any acceleration. Couldn't get past 20 this morning without stopping and restarting. Started on the weekend periodically, now ihs become a real problem.
