O.k....This just happend, I was driving down the interstate at 85 m.p.h. and suddenly I heard a (pppssssttttt) sound and smelled something kinda like burning rubber. Same time there was power loss. So I pulled over and put the hazard lights on. Opened the hood to check everything out. I thought I might have blown the timing belt at first. Everything looked fine. No smoke no nothing... . So I went back into the car and tried to start it to see if the engine would turn over...it made the same noise and started but then died imediately. hhmm...well I'm thinking...o.k. then so i tried it again and it started just fine no problem. All the gauges are showing its running just fine..not overheating and the oil preasure is just fine, boost is fine. so I let it idle for awhile and then put it into gear and made it home with no more problems... Starting to think I'm losing my mind...Please help!!
