Engine shut off for no apparent reason
The other day my 2017 Pacifica shut itself off and wouldn't start back up. The tow truck was able to use a jump pack to get it started and on the flatbed. He was unable to get it off the flatbed at the mechanics. It started once with the jump pack, and the shut off as soon as it was placed into gear. He ended up pouring tranny fluid behind the tires to get it to slide off the truck. The mechanic also had a hard time. Once started, and driven they couldn't recreate the issue. Tested the alternator and battery and those are good. They kept it a day, drove it and could not find anything wrong. When I went to pick it up, the remote start didn't work. Plenty of gas, all doors closed, etc. My next trip, I felt a little delay with the engine turning over. I drove to an appointment about 45 minutes away (highway driving, mostly). My appointment lasted 30-40 minutes. It didn't start on the first try. I waited a moment and tried again and it did start. I don't trust this car. I hope some one here has some clues. I'd like to have an idea before heading to the dealer.
All recalls have been addressed according to the NHSTA site.
