That could be caused by any number of thing's ! Electronic ignition , engine computer , sensors , fuel pump possibly . Don't suspect anything , test and if you don't have tools or knowledge suggest you watch videos on youtube for crank sensor testing . Check engine compartment wiring harness for lose connections , wires that are bare and touching ground . Check for small animal nests , rodents like to chew on wire's . Electronic componets can cause problems like this but the vehicle won't start up again till the componet cools down . Replacing parts not knowing that it is the problem for sure is not very good practice . Does it start bak up right away ? Check engine light on ? How to Test Crankshaft and Camshaft Position Sensors

Where is the throttle body and MAF sensor located on a 2008 220cdi diesel c class

Go to your local trusted garage and get car diagnostics scanned for faults. You may have a faulty egr valve or even a dirty throttle body etc. If you guess you might destroy the maf sensor. Expensive guess.

Bmw 3 series electrical faults

Hi sounds like the same problem I had crankshaft sensor my battery light came on and the engine would cut out sometimes would start straight away other times took 5mins to start again.
But would get a garage to check fault codes costs about 40pound but could save you 100's as it may be a faulty alternator/battery.

2004lx engine stops while driving


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

DIY Crankshaft Position Sensor BenzCranks No Start
Problems with the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) on Mercedes-Benz cars are fairly common. If you have been experiencing stalling or no start conditions, a failed crankshaft position sensor is often the problem. Your CPS may have failed if the engine cranks but it will not start. At first, you may experience no start conditions intermittently. As the crankshaft position sensor fails completely, the car will no longer start or will die when you are driving. Starting problems are initially random, but more frequent when the engine is hot. Other symptoms of a failed crankshaft position sensor are poor acceleration, engine vibrations, poor throttle response, bad fuel economy, hesitation, engine stalls. The engine starts if you let it cool down. (Thanks to MB Medic)

I have a 1992 dodge Dakota and it keeps shutting down while driving or anything. Replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, and plugs wires, abstribator cap and rotary button, and also the pick up.

This is a common problem when your crankshaft position sensor starts failing. I am attaching a picture to show you where it is. If it is faulty, your engine will stall for no apparent reason, and then will usually start again, almost right away.jcfs259.gif

Over heating

In general I know of no reason per se to replace the thermostat and temp sensor because you replaced the radiator fan. If the temp gauge seems to be staying in the 1/3-2/3 of full scale, and there is no apparent engine control issues as the engine warms from cold to operating temperature then there is no obvious reason to replace those items. Other than fan motor failure is there any reason for you to believe these other parts are at fault?You can get a free fault code readout at an Autozone parts store which would highlight a temp sensor problem, but there is no fault code for the thermostat except maybe the one for engine running cold for too long a time after start up. You could also check the resistance of the temp sensor which should run around 10-14,000 ohms when cold and drop to 700-1,000 ohms when warmed up.
I don't know about the issue of replacing the thermostat because I don't know which engine you are working with. So let me know an
