Engine Performance problem
1998 Mercedes Benz E430 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 157, 00 miles

i've owned this car 5 years and love it but recently started dying in traffic.
it gets regular checkups at the local mercedes shop but now it recently started dying in traffic.
the first time it died it had driven about 10 miles then restarted after 10 minutes. The second time it died it drove about 5 miles and it restarted after 10 minutes. The third time it died it idled in my driveway about 10 minutes before I left and then died just 5 blocks from the house after not being driven for 2 weeks since it died the second time. This time it may be going away on a tow truck. It has yet to restart.
question: do you think this problem would be because of a plugged catylitic convertor, a bad fuel management system, or possibly just a loose ground?
any information would be helpful. Thank you
