Hi - my Chevy Equinox recently has been had 3 indicdents where I am just driving along...car is running fine then all of the sudden there is a loss in power, then the dash lights up and the car shuts down. These instances have occured randomly (one going 65 miles and hour on the freeway, one in traffic while sitting at a light and once when coasting down a hill at 35) weeks apart from eachother and in-between the car is running just fine (except for a knocking / pinging sound I have had since buying the car. I am scared to drive and want to see if anyone else has experienced this problem and what to do about it. I had a mechanic look at it and since the check engine light isn't on there are no codes...he said engine looks good
