Default Sudden loss of power and car wont start
Hey guys and gals,

I'm new to this forum and had a quick question. My fiance was driving on the freeway when she suddenly lost power and throttle response. She then pulled over turned off the car and tried to start it again and wouldn't start. Any clue to what it might be and what i can check out? Thanks again. All comments and help are appreciated.

First off welcome to the forum.

I hate to ask this stupid question but did you check your battery and/or distributor? You may not be getting enough of a spark to fire all cylinders.

I'm thinking that the charging system has failed and the battery is dead. Pretty much everything on the car is electronic and with no power it all shuts down.
