GMC CANYON ENGINE PROBLEM

2006 GMC Canyon • 142,500 miles

Engine dies while driving. Can happen on highway with cruise set 72mph or can happen in town driving 35mph Or even at stop sign. Error I get Is POWER FAILURE TRACTION REDUCED. Dash display works and have electrical power but when turn key motor will not turn over at all I let sit for a minute or two and then will start up. Sometimes does this often every 5 min and other times can drive every where and only does it once every couple weeks. The check engine light error I get is p0601 failed ECM
