Hi,

I have been driving in the highway and the engine stalled and I had to pull over. Called the towing company but before the arrived, I was able to restart the engine (approximately after 20-30 min). Then I drove again and 10 min later the engine stalled again. When it cooled down, I was able to restart the engine. So it happened 3 times before I got home. The next morning the engine started with no problem but I did not risk driving.

What could be the cause?

Thank you

Thank you for your expert advice. You were absolutely right. It turns out to be the crank sensor. Apparently it is a very common problem in the ML320 series.
