    2008 Impreza (non-turbo) shut off on me on the way to work

    So the car shut off twice and when it did I was at a complete stop and the check engine light, battery, and oil light came on. I popped the hood and saw that i forgot to tight the clamp for the air manifold but do you think that could have caused it?

    Certainly could have caused you to stall

    That makes sense - a serious intake leak would pull in air past the MAF to the point where the mixture gets super-lean, doesn't have enough fuel to run.

    Drive it for a bit to make sure it doesn't return.
