Engine dies while driving on fwy

I have a 2006 CC 4x4 with 140,000 miles, recently I was driving on the fwy and all of a sudden the engine dies. Luck that it was not busy and I was able to coast to the side. It has also died on me while i was just parked and idling and coming off a complete stop. The weird thing is that there was no error code or engine light on. I have Been searching and found the ECM replay problem and the IPDM problem. I have a appointment tomorrow to have the replay replaced, but should I also expect to have to replace the IPDM? Could there be another thing causing this the problem? I have just replace the crack shaft sensor, but could a bad camshaft sensor also cause this problem without having the engine turn on.

I have already changed the crank position sensor .
Yes I did use OEM parts. I did my research on the crankshaft position sensor when my truck gave me a code. I’m thinking about just changing the both camshaft sensor anyway, with the amount of miles my truck has it might be a good idea. I also did replace my fuel sending unit when I had problems with my gas gauge, I think that was around 60k miles.
Has anyone experience the engine stalling in the middle of the fwy and not have any error codes come up? I’m wondering if one of the cam position sensor go bad without giving a error code.
its been a while since i change the fuel sending unit. I don't remember if I change the whole unit or just the unit.
Was both cam sensors replaced or just one?
