    When rolling to a stop with brakes lightly applied, engine randomly quits. It will start right back up. Engine will randomly sputter and then surge, and then return to normal idle. Engine has actually randomly lost ignition at freeway speed for a fraction of a second. I have not yet had problems diagnosed. The only actual fix I've seen online is one report of a defective crankshaft position sensor causing the stalling.
