appologize for not searching properly but i am a little irritated.
car is a 2010 passion with 10700 miles. It has a smartmadness silicone intake and genius exhaust.
Here is what just happened:
this morning the car was stumbling slightly like maybe i got a tank full of bad fuel. it felt exactly like a mild boost leak on a turbocharged engine that uses a MAF.
tonight coming home I get this:
very bad misfiring/stumbling. strong enough to bounce the head lights up.
check engine light flashes a few times then stays on.
engine dies on highway at 65
restart while coasting but now the car will not maintain any speed. any load placed on the engine causes it to die, so I coast to my exit.
I only have a couple miles of relatively flat road so I start pushing (i am in the Army and have pushed hmmwvs before thought this wouldnt be too bad...). make it about a mile while being passed by probably 30 people. one person stops to see if i need help. finally pushed the car off the side of the road and walked the other mile back to my house.
I noticed no smoke, leaks, weird sounds (other than the misfiring or whatever was going on), or anything else like that. I did notice that the car seemed to shift weird all day today and yesterday like it didnt know when to let the clutch out all the way.
W.T.F. just happened?!. keep in mind its pitch black outside and even with a flash light i cant see anything. my symptoms are very similar to this thread
Engine light on, lost power, sputtering (4th time 164 miles)
