Mazda 2005 MPV engine stalls suddenly when in motion

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

The car stalls when only while driving and then all warning lights come on. When I put car in park I am able to re-start immediately every time

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MPV yourself? What have you tried so far?

My mechanic was trying to fix it. He tried up-dating the computer system but that did not work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

My mechanic also tried to find out what's wrong by running a diagnostic check. Check was unable to identify problem.

Thank you for the bonus :)

I will add this , Make sure they check the ckp electrical connector plug for any backed out pins ,burned ,making poor connection, i like to use a flash light & clean up the area where sensor goes in with brake parts cleaner in case in debris in the hole of ckp housing , prior to installation

Now in extreme cases the Computer or wiring to ckp could be the issue ,that is why testing is needed .( in this case we do a continuity test on the wiring )

good luck with it ,let me know
