You need to have a OBD2 fault code test run, I think you will find there will be fault with the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor)

hey they all do, eventually and for sure never doing tune-ups.
ever get one in the last decade, no >? wow.
then posting with no engine stated, and is and ENGINE problem
and no country stated,
we have (USA) 3 engines, other countries, up to 7 offered and diesels.

truth is it can be 50 reasons to stall,
that shop can not fix cars that are not broken, !! unless SUPER LUCKY.
they scan it and see nada. because its long gone the cause.

it's called a stall.
and stalls are simple in physics, or in theory but have 50 causes, in parts causes, a and about 1 to 10 tests to find.
there is the truth for yah.
cause 1 is not it, lost 12vdc to EFI system.
cause 2, can you save the stall with fast right foot.?

you waited 5 minute to try again, why?
most do it in 1second to avoid getting rear ended.... wow.
that was brave.
if it starts right back up. it can be vast numbers of things.
1: bad engine, (say a valve stuck open and stalled)
2: bad spark, say not getting a tuneup it 17 years. wow....
3: bad fueling, say bad gas or leaking injectors or dead.
now the mid size list , tests.
say you have tools and can use them,, many guys can.
for sure old guys.. who did for 60 long years.

tests and inspections etc.:
compression ok, at spec, (a tool)
spark plugs new if gas engine.
no engine stated but bad cops. J20 or H engines have them.
or bad boots on said cops none last 17 years, NONE.
bad filters, air and fuel
bad fuel, old fuel or water contaminated. might be gone now....
injector tests, pressure, and leakdown tests, and injector balance testing.

Or just want a guess.
never tuned up ever
never once did the 60,000 mile repeating service points.
at the least.
.or EGR stuck open and stalled and will repeat.

the key factor was, preventing the stall with a fast right foot
you didnt so we can never know whats cause.
this adds air, doing that, and if it recovers easy.
it is a good clue.

no engine stated, ! nor country. sold world wide with huge list if engines.
G16, J20, H25 , H27 , are common.
if the j20 & up ,chain goes bad and you let go, catastrophic,
the engine pistons bends the head valves. unlimited damage.
what lives , is pure luck.
the G16 is free running and only a long walk home.

topic is cascade failures.

if it is over 60.000 miles or 100.00 klms it may be a broken timing belt
you can check that by seeing if the cam shaft is turning when you crank it over
run the fault codes for problems as ti can be cam/crank position sensors failed , immobilizer operated , fuel problem, ignition module failure
first check is easy, the next check ( fault codes ) is a must to not waste money

Try Autozone's loan-a-tool deal. The typical half-shaft remover is a fork that fits between the inner CV's housing and the transaxle case. The fork is attached to a slide hammer, only takes a blow or two to pull the half-shaft free.
Another way is to get a large screwdriver or pry bar or punch, use it against the inner CV's housing, tap it outward with a hammer. If you can get a good whack on it, it usually frees the axle. There is a circlip (ring) in a groove on the inner end of the shaft. This circlip fits in a corresponding groove in the transaxle gears. Once the ring clears the groove, the axle will slip right out.

have you checked the fuel pressure? I see that the fuel pressure regulator isn't on your list.

2000 Suzuki... | Answered on Jan 23, 2015

you used to service stations to prove its full.
using auto shutoff? if not do that first.
no need to condemn any gauge for that. or use a dip stick into
tank filler and see if it is really full.
sure there is a sender unit in all cars. all.
the sender test is covered in the FSM. clearly
alldata.com too.
and at suzuki pit stop plus (google those. 1s hit every time)

only 2 tests. tell you which is bad. the gauge or the sender
first check the fuses, for ever and ever all electrical failures.
but usually the whole meter sections go dead with a fuse.

the only thing you can adjust is spark plug gap. the others are computer controlled. the gap can be found on the emission sticker, located in the engine compartment on the underside of the hood or on the fan shroud. possibly on the shock mount tower.
