Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.The most common cause and known issue with the engine shutting off while driving on your Sorento is in most cases caused by a failing crankshaft position sensor. In order to verify if this is the cases you are going to need a scan tool that can read the data stream and watch the CKP signal, if you see it drop out when the engine stalls then its very likely the cause of the problem you are having and if that is the cases replacement is needed.
