: I was getting on the freeway today and I was doing 55 in third gear. All of a sudden I lost power (about 5000 rpm) and the CHECK light in the instument cluster came on. I shifted into fourth and I regained power
any ideas?
: Thanks

First thing that comes to mind is the rubber air intake boot between the AFM and air plenum. Look for cracks. Second, check the fuel pressure. You might have a pump going bad and are running it out of gas at 5k rpm.
