Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Rav4. My car recently loss

restarted it at the third attempt. Every time I
put in drive it died out. As it drove it puttered
and pulled back no power then died again
every stop. I had very little gas in the car. I
added has no change. Drove it home with
several dies out. Oh and it felt like when

did your check engine light come on? Did you get a code? Auto zone will read the code for free but you need to get it there.
