Default losing power at a constant speed

if i stay cruising at a constant speed for more than a few minutes the car will almost feel like its running out of gas. it will drop rpms real low until i punch it in nuetral. it will slowly rev up then be fine. am i not getting enough gas or what?

Default RE: losing power at a constant speed

the only thing i can compare it to would be like a flooded carb or something. this is really becoming a problem, especially on the highway when im at a speed for a long period of time

Changed your fuel filter lately? Also some STP fuel system cleaner run through your next tank of gas would not hurt. Check and make sure the MAF is clean(the wire can get dirty).
