What the F**K

just wondering if ne one could help me with this problem. when im driving doesnt matter whether its crusing on freeway or driving through town sometimes she automatically drops back to third and the voltmeter just flys across to too many volts. even when i go to change gears (auto) theres just no response. the accelerator is still there but thats it. it stops and goes back to normal after abot 20-30 seconds

Check for gremlins!!!!

but seriously, if the voltmeter go's crazy get the altinator checked out IMEDIATLY, it could be that the regulator is crook and is sending voltage spikes into the electrical system, thou the spikes would not be long and high enough to blow a fuse, it maybe enough to make any 'computer' go CrAzY!
