Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car dies out and it doesn't turn over and I have to jump start it when it occurs. I'm not much of a mechanic I'm good with numbers but not cars lol. So that being said, can anyone tell me what's going on with my wife's car? She is not happy with me right now and I think I'm sleeping on the couch tonight until I get it repaired or just find out what's causing this to die out and why it say reduce engine power. Please Help!!!!!

Could several things, try cleaning the throttle body, or a bad throttle body sensor. You may need to reprogram the PCM
