Default Another engine dying while driving

Possibly a stupid question: my own issues with the engine dying while running started a couple of months after I had my accident - I T-boned a guy who ran a red light at an intersection. I was braking hard from 40 mph and was at a guess doing at least 20 when I hit him. I didn't need a new radiator, but I have just had to have the cooling fan module replaced and have been through a PCV valve, cam shaft position sensor and an oil pressure sensor since February. This has actually only really been an issue since I started having PT ten miles up the interstate from home (I have about seven minutes of city traffic either end of the trip.)


Previous PT Cruiser: 2007 Touring Edition (non-Turbo) in Ocean Pearl.

Current Cruiser: 2007 Limited Edition Turbo, chrome trim package, Cool Vanilla (husband's car).

Now driving a 2014 Ford Escape SE 2.0 Ecoboost, Deep Impact blue (perhaps not the best name choice for a vehicle of mine!)
