Mechanical Issues

Asked by Jan 13, 2016 at 08:28 PM about the 1998 Lexus ES 300 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive a 98 Lexus ES300. While driving 80 on the
Interstate my car started slowing down and
eventually stopped. It will start but when you push
on the throttle it shuts off. What could be wrong
with it?

Fuel pump, fuel filter or maybe a plugged up catalytic converter. Is the check engine light on?
