Hey Scott==Check the cat convertor. Put a vacuum gauge on the engine and see what vacuum you have at 900rpm.It should be about 18 inches. Then rev it to 3500 and it should not drop over about 5 inches. If it drops to 8 or9 inches and stays there at that rpm, the conv is plugged. GoodluckJoe

Sometimes this condition is caused by a dirty fuel filter.

It depends on what you mean by "loses all power". If you mean the electrical system stops working (i.e. engine quits, no lights, etc.) then it could also be caused by a dead alternator or battery, broken alternator belt, bad electrical connections, etc.

What is wrong when car loses power or doesn't shift right or has high RPM's when manually shifting?

Sounds like clutch issues. When the clutch (a wearable component), which transfers the engine power to the transmission (and on to the wheels), wears to the point that it can no longer transfer that power (ie. torque), it will actually start to slip, increasing engine rpm's and losing power (torque) to your wheels. The cure is replacement of the clutch.

Is having power wrong?

The Bible says God gives authority to those He wills. It is not power itself that is wrong, but the abuse of that power. EDIT : Though I disagree with the use of the Bible as citation for this idea, that is correct. Power is only wrong if it is imposed upon a party in a way that is unjust; the reception of power itself is not an inherent evil. That said, "power corrupts."
