car died on highway

I was driving on the highway and as i was driving the car felt like it stalled it, lost all power and i couldnt accelerate. the engine was still running becuase i shifted down to see what it would do and it did rev down and could hear the exhaust. i have a check engine light on for my intake it isnt stock its a short ram and in the cold i get a code for running rich and it started flashing. when i pulled over the car was still running and i tried giving it gas to see what it would do, it would rev to 3k tops and then start to choke at 3k. i tried putting it in first to move the car and it wouldnt move i thought clutch at first but it isnt slipping its the engine itself is choking out. i turned the car off then started it up again and it ran as if there was never an issue. any ideas?

Get those codes scanned. You most likely have more codes thrown

Flashing cel would not mean loose tensioner/belt. These cars have an auto tensioner. The belt will fail before the tensioner will.
