Car stall normally take place as below, however after rest for 30min~1hr it can start again. During stall the "exhaust emission" indicator will light up and cannot select any gear even Netural.

- After travel for 20~30 minutes at speed 80~90km/h
- At traffic jam

Did send to few workshop for checking but they can't confirm the root cause(all have different finding/error code - P1700, P1731, P1740), nevertheless still suggest to me to change gearbox actuator sensor, gearshift actuator and clutch actuator.

Your prompt advice is appreciated.

When it doesn't restart, check to see if there is spark and fuel to the engine. Then you will know what circuit to focus on.
