Hi there. I'm new to the site, if anyone can help me, that would be great....

A few days ago I started my car (it was already warm) and it stalled right after it started. I started it again and no problems.
The following day I started it and it idled rough like it wanted to stall. Once it got warm and drivin it appeared to be running fine. I got into some downtown traffic and it stalled and hasn't started since (I got it towed home).
It turns over strong but won't start. I am guessing that maybe it is either the crank sensor, fuel pump, fuel pump relay or fuel filter....but I'm only guessing, I don't have any experience with this model (it has the 3.0L inline-6). I have only owned a 87 190E 2.6 and a 99 ML430.
If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated!!!
