intermittent fault - engine stalls on 2007 Kia Sorento

Now and then this fault appears: The engine does not take load. When I turn it off and start again, it works fine. Recently, the Emission control light came on associated with this fault and the engine stalled completely. Restarted ok. But this can be dangerous in heavy traffic with the power steering not working. (It's a diesel engine)

If you have an '07, it's probably still under warranty. Take it to the dealer to have it checked out. If your engine light came on, there will be trouble codes stored that they can scan for. I didn't know Kia had a diesel engine
