I have a 2000 Toyota Corolla. Tonight as I was driving home the power, radio and engine, shut down for just a second. It happened four times. The first 3 times the engine picked up again, but the fourth time it stopped. In all the cases the power came right back on and I could restart the car just fine.

More Info from Sunday:
Yesterday I drove the car around the neighborhood for 10 minutes, no problems. Then I drove 70 miiles on the freeway, no problems. But then I hit a national park and was on a road that had hills and a speed limit of 25mph. The car died about every quarter mile. It died if I was coasting down a hill or if I was lightly accelerating up a hill. On the dirve home it died at 45 mph and another time at 50mph, but once I was on the freeway it was fine.

Is anyone here?

Any ideas? Thanks,

Ted

Please refund my money, it's been 62 hours since I asked my question and I haven't heard anything from you guys. Here is a quote from your page:

". If you elect to donate a small sum of your choice, we will guarantee an answer from one of our certified technicians within 24 hours. If we are not able to help you, we will gladly return your donation. "

I lost the weekend I could have worked on my car. Now I have an appointment with Toyota to have them look at it tomorrow. What a disappointment this website is. Yes, I know I asked the question on a Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend. I didn't choose the time and day for my car to break. You guys guaranteed an answer in 24 hours, you didn't caveat it by saying business hours or normal working hours, so that means 24 hours to me. You need to change your wording or let folks know that you can't keep your promises.

Your probable causes here to your problem could be one of the following: Ignition switch, cam and crank sensors, the TPS and MAP sensors to include a fuel pump on its way out or a problem with the alternator not producing the correct output voltages which the computer takes 11volts or better to function effectively if not could caused a glitch within the parameters
