Diagnosing your car through this computer is close to impossible...
Typical things to check:
Dirty throttle body
Dirty air filter
Fouled fuel injector(s)
Bad MAP sensor
I'd still recommend you get the OBDII checked for codes or pending codes. The Check Engine Light might not be coming on because the car shuts off before the parameters to turn the light on aren't met - may be a pending code stored to tell you what the problem is.

Take it to the service department.

Good Luck!

I believe he unplugged the sensor to cause the CEL to light - so that the ECU went to default values - and then plugged the sensor back in.

NOT a permanent solution - but worth a try to diagnose.
