2000 Mercedes Benz ML430 Base 8 Cyl 4.3L


Car abruptly stops while running

While moving the engine abruptly cuts out and the car stops. When I try and re-crank it it re-cranks but the engine does not catch on and cuts off again. If I wait for 10 minutes (sometimes lesser) and recrank the cars starts smoothly (just like it should) and then is good again for 10-30 miles before engine cuts off again.

battery has ben tested and it is perfect. Anybody has any idea what is happening...Please help as otherwise I will need to getthe car checked by the super expensive Merc mechanics. Thanks...Vineet
