lots of water and car is stalling at highway speeds

Well while driving down the highway in my 01 cobra in 5th gear red light comin up, throw car in neutral and motor cuts out check engine light and batter light both on. Turn the key it fires right up. Did that a few times this week. Then after we got home from cruising last night turned the car off and there is water streaming out from under the passenger side. The ac was on but there was a huge pool of water and it's streamed and went halfway across my garage floor about 5 inches wide. Any ideas?

sounds like your heater core is leaking or the cabin filter is clogged.

If it got to hot it will shut off or blow a head gasket

Ya. It wasn't running hot at all. Coolant full Turned the rpms up Went to a aluminum flywheel insert from factory so rpms were low and car died after neutral at high rpm. They dropped to low. Turned it up to 900-1000 not a prob dying since. I'm just trying to figure out the water now

Re: lots of water and car is stalling at highway speeds

make sure that the drainage pipe for your ac isn't somehow stopped up, or maybe it was and then it opened back up when you got back parked.
