When I am driving my 2001 Hyundai Sonata (usually after I have stopped for an errand and get back into my car), I will be driving along when suddenly the car starts to rev unusually high for about 30 seconds.

Hi there. I was driving my Kia Carens 2007 model when there was a sudden loss of power. My car slowed down until it just stopped.
