I have an 01 Pontiac Aztek. Please help!

I have an 01 Pontiac aztek. I had a used engine put in about 3weeks ago by a licensed mechanic. They got it out of a Chevy Malibu with 80thousand miles on it. And a new transmission filter about a week and a half ago. And a week ago they replaced the injector gaskets. It was running perfectly fine just like new. Then just all of a sudden while I was driving the check engine light came on for maybe 30seconds, it would not accelerate at all. and then the engine just shut off. The lights and radio still worked and were not effected. I then tried restarting it and it turned over and nothing. It tried to start but wouldn't. The fuel pump turns on. Please help...

The first thing you need to check is the transmission fluid level and see if it's low. Try also smelling it in case it smells burned, which will mean that it requires replacement. Check also the solenoid valves that maybe stuck. You may need to get a mechanic to help you diagnose the problem.
