Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
The glow plug light flashing can indicate a fault is detected by the engine computer.If the glow plugs were at fault it would not cause the engine to shut down as heat build up and compression keep it running without glow plug operation.
What will cause this issue though that you have here is a fault with the crank position sensor.Most engines use a crank position sensor and this sensor can fail to send the proper signals intermittently and causes a stall out.In most all cases the vehicle then has to sit and cool to be able to restart which is anywhere from 30 seconds to an hour or more ( in this case 10 minutes) then the sensor starts to work again.I have seen this sensor fail several times before in the past and had to replace it for this issue here.
I would have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool to see what codes are set and then those codes diagnosed to then help locate and repair this issue here.
