There so many cause for a car to just shut off. First thing you do is chec for spark. If no spark check for blown fuse. If there is spark check for fuel. Do this by spraying some starting fluid in the air intake. If it starts then dies then it is not getting fuel. The cause can be a fuel pump fuse, clogged fuel filter, or worst a bad fuel pump. If there is spark and there is fuel and it still wont start, check the timing. If timing is good and still wont start or it starts and then stops, then the exhaust is blocked. maybe by corrotion or something.

What would cause my 1995 dodge dakota to shut off when driving it down the road? I t does not run rough or bad and has plenty of power. I have cjanged the knock sensor, distributor, cap and rotar, plugs...

Dakotas and Durangos are notorious for intermittent failures of the crankshaft position sensor. If you get a shutdown like someone just turned the key off, then this is a likely suspect. Fortunately, they are relatively cheap and easy to replace by the DIYer.

2002 Pt Cruiser engine shuts off suddenly

take it to an auto electrician and have all the ground wires checked out
what you describe is a loose /broken wire that moves after the bump and cuts off a circuit
moving what ever you move is moving something and making the circuit good again
