Christmas tree then shut of i turned the ignition
again and it jus didnt turn over. But theres power to
the car. Their oils, also half tank of gas. Smh. So i
waited on the side. As the car cooled of it turn over
and i drove  doin less then 30mph to get home.
Wen this happened i was doin 50mph. Like once i

I would be inclined to perform a Fuel Pressure Test. You may have a restricted Fuel Filter or Bad Fuel Pump. I would also check the EGR(exhaust gas re-circulation) System. A plugged CAT(catalytic converter) is also a possibility. Any Warning Lights ON when the Engine is running?
