this info is kinda useful, but is not what I am looking for, I would much rather like to know if the vehicle threw off any codes at the very moment the other vehicle that hit us. are there codes that tell one if the vehicle stalled out, or am I barking up the wrong tree ... Not at all looking to repair this vehicle, looking to find out whether or not it stalled when I hit the gas to get my van up to enough speed to get into the lane that I was attempting to get into, just before we were broadsided taking off the front of the van, literally ripping off the entire front end of the van clear off the vehicle. I can remember there was no ummph to get going. when I accelerated there was nothing. one moment the engine was running, the next there was nothing, then we got hit. so I guess I answered my own question, but I would like to know if this has happened to anybody else out there ...

I basically need proof that my engine stalled out, and am looking to find out if anyone, or anybody knows of anyone that the same thing has happened to you or them and how did you determine that it was the engine stalling out on you whether or not you have had an accident or have came awful freakin close. are there codes that tell whomever that either yes, this vehicle stalled on acceleration or no it did not. I did a recall search online and found that the fuel system has a recall on it, but I am not a mechanic and do or do not know if that would be the cause of Wednesdays crash
