Q: Camaro stopped accelerating

asked by on

To mention there were no previous signs of mechanical issues at all. I was driving on the highway yesterday and when I reached around 70 it stopped accelerating and started jerking. I managed to pull over to the side of the road because it stopped accelerating completely. I towed it home, It starts but there is like a rattling noise while its just parked and when I put it in to gear to drive and try to drive it shuts off. Any clues???? Thanks

My car has 129000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
