Assuming that the V8 has a similar system as the rest which monitors for belt slippage, this may be the problem. The symptoms you describe match up perfectly with a slipping belt.

Is the belly pan still under the engine?

Did you go through a water puddle?

I went through something like this several weeks back, it cured itself and all was well.

Good luck,
