This depends upon the car; but, generally, any out-of-tune condition or vacuum leak can cause it. jb The very most likely cause is a clogged throttle body. A Chevy dealer will fix it for under $200. This is a very typical symptom of this problem. VBdenny A common cause is a corroded EGR valve. Often you can spray some lubricant on the rod the EGR valve rides on and that will correct the problem, if not permanently at least it could tell you if that's it.

Why will a car start and run for a few minutes then loses power to the engine like you stopped giving it gas dies and will not start again after about 10 minutes you can start the car again?

i can start the car, and it runs for a few meters, dies out like im giving it no gas. then it will not restart. after sitting about 10 minutes or so, it will start again and is drivable for a few more meters, then dies again to have the whole process rinse and repeat itself . it also makes a loud rattling noise like the valves are rattleing and then loses all horsepower then dies. once its started back up it sounds like the lifters are tapping, and just gets louder until the car dies again. it will not idle on its own.
