3.0 CRD 2009 GC cutting out

my CRD has developed this really annoying issue where it cuts out/stalls.

It does'nt do it when idling, never has - only once drive (normally reverse, although could be coincidental) is engaged, and oddly hasn't done it once on first start in the morning (when coldest), only after it has been stood outside the office for 7/8 hours. Again could be coincidence, but also seems to be when dark so lights on etc.

Dealer has explained it sounds like fuel filter, so that was replaced yesterday but problem has carried on today. No faults registering on diagnostic checks either.

Idea's please?

thanks Sean

I think that you are experiencing a periodic fault with your crankshaft position sensor (cps) pretty common issue with the crd. I carry a spare cps now.

Hi, is the same as the crankshaft position sensor?

thanks Sean

hi again,

I've been reading up on various reports regarding the crank position sensor, most seem to include non starting - which is something mine thankfully always does (so far).

Check the glow plug harness... I had the same exact issue with the truck stalling out ocassionally but always starting. Luckily I had a service manager who familiar with these engines and he traced to a chafed wire that was grounding out the entire glow plug system which stalled the truck.
