Default Loss of power while driving

I purchased a certified used 2006 Caravan about 8 weeks ago, and it has already been back to the dealership for one major repair (5 days into ownership the fuel coupling "failed" emptying my gas tank all over the highway.) The entire fuel line had to be replaced, according to the mechanic.

This morning, as my husband was driving to work, he had a complete loss of power. He was actually driving when the engine shut itself off. He was able to pull onto the breakdown lane and restart the vehicle and safely make it to work.

Since the dealership isn't open yet this morning, any suggestions as to what would cause this?

1st guess would a fuel problem, since the system had just been worked on ? Next would a plugged cat. Does the van have the 2.4, 3.3 or the 3.8 engine ?
