Dear customer, thank you very much and sorry for my delay I have work accumulated.
I want to tell you that the code P2191 is a code obtained by a problem in the mixture of Air-Gasoline, what happens is that this mixture is not suitable for the proper functioning of the vehicle, therefore the loss of strength and the sudden cut off. The vehicle does not have the capacity to maintain the proper mixture for operation causing it to turn off.
To solve this, we must attend certain aspects related to the sensors that regulate this and if necessary replace them.

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 4 months ago.

First we must observe the oxygen sensor that is in the exhaust and it is common to get dirty and gets blocked by the dirt. This sensor is responsible for perceiving the mixture of the cylinders, if in your case it is defective proceed to replace it.
Then we should check the MAF sensor and the throttle body system, we have to make sure that they are not dirt and the air filters are clean.
If they are dirt, proceed to replace the filter and clean the throttle body.
If the sensor is defective or damage, replace it.

Then the injection system is our next step.
We have to disassemble the injectors, it happens many times that the injectors do not sprayed gasoline causing that they do not regulate the fuel entering cylinders causing these problems. We should check the injectors in a test bench to observe that they are pulverizing the fuel all and in a controlled manner.
Also replace the fuel filters.
