Sputtering and Stalling

I have a 2011 Chevy Equinox that has engine problems which are very concerning (diesel-like start, rough idle, stalling, etc). I have received several diagnostics, and they have yet to "duplicate" the problem. The "problem" resulted in me and my 3 children being stalled on a major highway. What do you do when the mechanic can not "duplicate" the problem? I'm terrified to drive the vehicle, and I am scared to take my children around in it. Should I contact GM about a recall? What are my legal rights in this situation? Can someone please help. Accident waiting to happen

    I have a 2014 Equinox w/2.4 engine. I regularly research symptoms and solutions. The most common repair for your issue is a "camshaft position actuator." I believe it is a simple plug in device on top side of engine. I would also replace spark plugs every 50,000 miles. Change oil every 4000 miles to slow down the internal engine problems the 2011's had. Good luck.
