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.
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.
