Okay well i was driving along ,everything was fine and randomly after about 30 mins of driving the car lost almost all power...i had my foot almost down to the floor and it didn't go any faster then 40km's..after a few seconds it took off but it was a little shaky.

So i pulled over , put it in park and reved it a few times and then everything was fine.

What could this be? My dad was saying the injectors is probably dirty or the fuel i last got was crap.
Any suggestions?

I'd say the fuel pump is starting to let go but see what happens over a couple of drives.

It will last until the worst possible moment and leave you on the side of the road.

Best to do it sooner than later.
