when this happens does it shake shudder and stall?

No pretty much just locked up. Felt like there was no steering.

No engine lights at all. Drives pretty decent other than that issue which has only rarely happened

and does it instantly restart?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Earlier in the year it did have an issue where it ran out of coolant due to some type of leak. This was fixed. No other mechanical issues. Some type of ignition sensor was also replaced.
