Unhappy 2006 PT Cruiser Touring Edition stalls on highway

Hello,

After fixing my cruise control problem recently (see Solution for Cruise Control not working on 2006 PT Cruiser Touring Edition), I'm having another issue with my 2006 PT Cruiser Touring Edition (with 32,000 miles on it)...

I was driving along an Iowa highway at 65 MPH on cruise when all of a sudden my 2006 PT crusier stalls. The speedometer goes down to 0 MPH. No engine light comes on or anything. I had to pull over onto the shoulder of the highway, stop and turned off engine. I waited a few seconds, turned on car and took off again down the highway. About 10 miles down the highway, it stalled again (still no engine light) as I was cruising at 65 MPH again. Had to pull over again, stop, turn off car and turn back on. I drove another 40 miles and arrived at home with no other stalling problems.

I've been driving it around town the last day or so with no problems with sputtering/stalling.

I'm a newbie so I'm just wondering what I should do? I don't plan on driving at highway speeds until this Saturday (2/25). Just driving around town for the week.

Any thoughts?

Thank you!

Sounds like major power loss, not engine control per se.

Remove air filter box and check for corrosion on & around battery
