2000 Mercedes S430 stalling/not turning back on
I was stuck in traffic on the highway yesterday in about 75 degree weather and all of a sudden my car stalled. It would not turn back on. When i tried to turn it back on, I would just hear the the starter trying to turn on the car to no avail. Then after getting towed to a shop, I try to turn it on again and it works! The car sounded normal and was running normal. Then after revving it and doing some laps around the parking lot, it dies again. I try to start it again but nothing. Then 30 minutes later i try to start it and it starts again, and then soon later it dies... I have no check engine lights and no other warning lights. The shop i had it towed to could not find anything wrong with it. It turned on fine and was running normal when the mechanic checked it out.
Any ideas on what this could be? Could it be a crank position sensor?
