I have a 1999 mercedes E320 and when the problems started, it would just die and I would not be able to restart the vehicle until it was cooled down. I replaced the camshaft position sensor and the vehicle is still not staying started. After about 15 minutes it would still die. I checked the fuel pump and its still pushing at 100% any ideas?
Do you

Have you considered the crankshaft position sensor. This is located on the drivers side top of the bell housing and can be accessed from the top of the motor. Sometimes these collect water around them and will corrode, eventually causing a stall condition.

Have you replaced the Mass airflow sensor as well. This can often times cause stalling conditions. Also consider a worn fuel pressure regulator, this will often times cause poor running and stall conditions as well. Also a camshaft position sensor can also cause stall conditions as well at low speeds. Do you have any warning lights on in the dash?

Changed the crankshaft position sensor and it kept up. Will look at the air flow sensor and fuel pressure regulator. There are no warning lights whatsoever and when u check the system, no codes show.

Were there any conditions that lead up to this. Did you notice any other problems before the stalling began? Decreased fuel mileage? Poor idle? Lower top speed? Hesitations?

You said your fuel pump is running at 100% what is the fuel pressure reading at the fuel rail? Also don't rule out faulty injectors. If you hold a screw driver to them you should hear them click on and off as they actuate.
