I assume there are no warning lights on?
You mentioned this has occurred 4 times over what length of time or miles?
With the current information, my thoughts are to check the EGR system to see if it is clogged restricting flow and to monitor the fuel pressure while driving to see if its ever dipping low or not staying steady during these events indicating a fuel pump pr pressure regulator issue.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
