Sputtering and stalling


#1

i need some help. my gf car is a chevy lumina late 90’s and this morning she got off the highway and the car started sputtering and shaking and then died. it took her a few minutes to start it up again at the intersection. the check engine light is on. what could it be? anyone?


#2

also, before the car died the lights went off and the directionals didnt work…is that the alternator?
