Was making a 300 mile drive. Car did fine until very near the end of the trip. The light indicating D4, which is the gear the car was in, began to flash, and the car began to act like it was running out of gas. We drove the car far enough to be able to get off of the highway, locked, and safe for the night. Called friend who came to pick us up. On the following morning we returned to the car. Checked all fluids. 1/4 quart low on oil - which has been changed on 5/14. Car started right up. About 30 min later, service engine light came on and stayed on. Completed trip to friends (additional 30 min), and parked it. NOW sitting out of state, with my 2 sons, and do not trust the car. Any idea of 'what' the problem is would be very helpful, so I can get it repaired on get home! Thank you in advance for any assistance. Almost forgot. Had air conditioning running, and it dripped so badly, it soaked the floorboard all the way to the back seat! Related to troubles?
