TDCI 1.8 DIESEL JOLTING LOSS OF POWER ,CRANKS OVER BUT NOT FIRING AT ALL.

2000 Ford Focus • 82,000 miles

1 car running ok one day, the next day its jolting over the road loss of power, like a fuel blockage, then dies wont fire at all
2 fuel pump has been replaced and fuelfilter also replaced, fuel pump tested ok, pumping good.
3 the mechanic plugged in his diagnostics computer for error codes.
4 the error it came up with was a bad earth.
5 the mechanic unable to find a bad earth.
so is there anyone that can help me because my car has been in the garage for 1 week but still none the wiser too what the problem is. The mechanic is going try a crankshaft sensor on monday to see if this makes any difference.

Did you have the ful pressure checked as I requested?

Fuel control solenoid should be checked as well
