Stalling when hot

Newbie here needing some help with their new toy

I have a 560 SEL and it stalls when hot. I am able to restart it but it wont run or rev. I leave it for a while and then it will run.

Having looked at a few sites it could be a number of things

Does anyone know the position of the crank sensor and how would I tell if it is faulty??

Any assistance would be greatly received

Check the DIY thread on top of the W 126 forum and also use the 'search this forum' function there, on the top right of the page. I would recommend to re post on the W 126 forum as well. The DIY section has the link to the official mbusa service instructions for the W 126 on two CD's for only $ 20. Also, the inclusion of your car mod. and location to your personal profile would make it easier to offer advice. Good luck, Teutone (aka Horst K)
