Probably, it is the fuel-injection pump that cannot supply the necessary gasoline as quickly as needed. So, it "starves" and stalls.
Try removing the gas-tank filling-plug, to let some air into the gas-tank -- there could be a "vacuum" that prevents the pump (which is inside the tank) from pushing fuel.

DEAR,

This is due to the cold engine start.

Please get the Glow plugs checked.

Engine dies while still driving. May start up immediately, may start in 5 mintes, 30 minutes, or longer.


does ur car heat up? if not please check your ground coz it may be rusted. What I suppose it is: your fuel pump. they die slow. Immediately it dies, hit the gas tank with a 2x4 and if your ground is good, it may start or you'll hear the pump turn on immediately you put it on ign.
