I was at the end of a three hour trip earlier this week with the temperature outside hovering around 100ºF when I started to slow down. Giving it gas didn't do anything and the RPMs stayed around 2000, but the car just kept slowing down with RPMs dropping relative to speed until I eventually had to pull over and stop, at which point the car died. I let it sit for a couple minutes then it had trouble starting but it made it. I was able to go about 700 feet until similar symptoms stopped me. Let it sit longer this time and was eventually able to make it home.
