Engine shuts down it warrms up

Post by Baassbooster »

Hello I have a weird problem regarding my C5 2006 Kombi Hdi
Engine just shuts down after it heats up to working temperature,and I cant start the engine for 60 seconds. After that I can start up engine but some times it just shuts down again or I can drive again no problems. Temperature gauge doesnt show overheating.

On the vast majority of cars, this is an indication that the Crank Sensor is faulty. And they don't always present themselves to being code read either!
