Mercedes C200 diesel Automatic, 90,000 miles Driving along

Customer Question

Mercedes C200 diesel Automatic, 90,000 miles
Driving along not particularly fast the car just cuts out. The dash goes blank but the lights, hazard Warning and indicators still work. Glide, in gear, into the side if the road. Turn everything off, restart the engine and the car goes.
The car has been looked at by my mechanic (Mercedes, not Dealer). He can find nothing, with perhaps a heating problem which he thinks unlikely. Has cut out several times since.
Very anxious about driving it! Does not think its the Mass Air Sensor.

Hello,Cutting out without any fault codes can be caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor. Usually this happens when the engine gets heat-soaked after driving for a while.best regards,Stan
