If recharging the battery makes it start/go again then its a fault in the charging/battery circuit.
Solution 1. Check alternator. It should read over 14 volts across the battery terminals with engine at tick over. If its below that its the alternator thats faulty
Solution 2. Try a different battery known to be good. any size will do for a couple of days. Batteries sometimes only last 2-3 years. yoyrs could have been on since 2006!!!!!!
Apparently there is a temperature sensor somewhere that if it detects an overheat, it will shut the engine down. I've had it cut out 4-5 times when overtaking. Very nasty. Yet to find what the underlying cause is - collapsing radiator hose perhaps?
are you sure its diesel first , you could have injectors problem pump timing air filter plugged but it sounds like running rich so i would go to fuel problem plugs , injectors, timing as well check engine is it on
sounds like you have a bad catalytic converter when they clogg your car cant exhaust and creats backpressure that stalls out your car the same thing with your air filter if its dirty your not getting enough clean air to the car... but because it runs 10 min... before it dies and you are getting no warning lights, and the car restarts after it cools down makes me think catalytic converter.... i hope this helps
i would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is-- check egr too, Lee
