Could be a HUGE number of things. Could be the battery, could be a fouled plug, bad electrical system, yada, yada, yada. IMO, bring it to the dealer to be checked. Do NOT pass go. Do NOT collect $200.

yeah there could be a lot of cause. it could be engine, leaking, etc.... i have heard some guy with the engine shut down in the middle of the road, only to find that his gas guage was broken and the car was out of gas where the gauge shows 3/4

no matter what take the car in to have a thorough check

I agree - it could be any number of things. I had that exact problem happen with my 1996 Nissan Altima. The engine would just shut off while I was driving. SCARY!

It turned out to be a faulty camshaft position sensor.

I'm taking it to the dealer next week to get another engine trouble fixed, the fvcking pinging. they say it's a piston. they'll replace the WHOLE block. Then ill tell them to check this too.

I got a lot of things to get fixed. the black window trim on the left side of the car is rippled. the 2 cupholder doors dont close. the center console (armrest) is not centered, so the driver seat touches it when i turn left.. and it's squeaking... that's it

Nah, it's probably not a tranny problem. Did you get some impurities in your gas?

Maybe that's what caused your engine to die. If one of the piston is busted, then that cylinder probably has no compression and you are running on 5 cylinders. But again, it could be a number of other things. If I had to guess, I'd say it is your fuel pump that is cutting out intermittenly.
