Car suddenly shut off 0 power

I was on my way home last night going about 40 and my the engine just turned off. Tach went to 0 lost power steering but the lights stayed on it was instant just off. It had a service engine soon light but no 1/2 engine or whatever light. I pulled it into the closest plaza and it wouldnt start back up. Any ideas on what this could be?

its been randomly not starting on the first attempt but it always starts almost like i have to prime it before it starts. I didnt get to read the code but it just said service engine soon. I just put a Walbro in about 2 months ago

They do not reflash the dme. They disconnect the battery then replace the cable at the junction box.
