what makes rpm drop rapidly then shut down
If the check engine light is on, then have the vehicle scanned for any trouble codes. Write them down. Any code that shows up would let you know what needs to be looked at. Another reason could be a fuel issue. Fuel pressure test would need to be performed to determine a problem.
