    It's not a Jaguar XJ is it? Exact same thing happened to my FIL a few weeks ago, engine cut out when he was doing 70 on the motorway.

    Glad you're ok, must have been very scary :(

    OH Holly
    I'm so sorry to here this. You really don't need anything else going wrong. Hopefully it will be a quick and inexpensive fix and you'll have it back quickly.

    I hate car trouble.

    Oh no! Poor Holly! Our Volvo did that to us (YEARS ago, before we were married). We'd just turned onto a hilly road in the Lake District (AKA middle of nowhere) and everything just turned off. This was before cell phones, so we had to ask at a nearby cottage to use the phone (lucky there WAS a cottage:scared1:) and we thought it might be the fuel injection :scared1::eek: - turned out to be a fuse in the electrics :faint: Hope yours is something so simple (and cheap) :hug:

    Holly - i am sorry that it seems life keeps throwing you challenges.
    This has happened to me twice- once it was my alternator, and the other one of my engine cylinders - both times on the Mass Pike!

    Here's hoping for a better day.

    That happened to me going 75 mph on the tollway a couple of years ago! It was also the alternator. The cost of missing the work meetings, and work time was more than the repair and towing. It's frustrating, but that's what happens when we own these man-made pieces of metal!!

    Hope you get it figured out!
