'91 pontiac sunbird

I dont know exactly how to describe what it is doing. I was driving down the road and it seemed to lose power. I mean that i was losing speed. I pushed the pedal harder and held about 50 but the rpms were high. I made it home and after letting the car sit, i drove it a few miles and it didn't do it. I think it will get worse and only starts at a certain speed or distance. Any ideas would be appreciated.

My dad has a firbird (not sure of year) and he had a similar problem. I don't know if this helpd or not, but his would die after a while of running. Turned out to be his coil. It would overheat and shut down. Could be a similar problem, but I'm not sure.
