What Engine in this vehicle? Mileage? I would be inclined to have this vehicle checked out with a Scan Tool. Although there appears to be no warning lights on or flashing...there may be codes "pending"...and waiting for a repeat of events that would then set a code and turn the CEL on. I would then road test the vehicle with Scan Tool in place to capture data should the event reappear. This could also be a fuel delivery issue...namely a Fuel Pump going bad. A fuel pressure test would also be in order.
