jeep losing power and chugging

As anyone had a similar problem to what I'm having. Every few weeks whist driving the car will lose power and shake like you would not believe. As soon as I pull up switch off then start up again the problems goes and may not happen agian for another couple of weeks. I'm running the car on shell v-power diesel. The car has been plugged in to a diagnostic with no results.
HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The spark plugs should be changed out every 30k miles, using copper core NGK or Champion as per under hood label.
Also The IAC controls idle and port and IAC do need cleaning. Spray out the throttle body as well.

You will probably get more help with your CRD over on LOST. They have a pretty large CRD community over there. http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB...orum.php?f=119
