Check engine light came on approx 1 month ago. As driving on highway approx 65 mph, car cut out like it was going to die - then kicked back in and drove normally. Filled tank with premium / tightened cap properly. Light went off - no further problem until yesterday / today. Yesterday with a little less than 1/4 tank, light came on with slight cut out at acceleration. Filled up with premium, tightend cap properly. Light went off later in the day. This morning - driving down highway at approx 70 mph (not accelerating) - light came on again, engine cut out significantly as if car would die. Decelerated - to about 60 - drove okay until in stop and go traffic & traffic lights - then cut out each time accelerated. Any idea?? Catalytic converter, fuel injector, need fuel "cleaner" like stp?? Thanks!!
