Sprinter 311 (2001) won't start

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my sprinter, it won't start unless bumped. We did an engine rebuild after a crankshaft bolt snapped and put a com rod through the casing. So we replaced the bottom end.

Once the build was finished it struggled to start when cold but did turn over. After a few miles it won't start again until the engine gets cold. Its now got to the point were it fires a few ft after being bumped. We were told it was crankshaft sensor, so we changed the sensor and still no luck. Wondering if any can suggest and ideas.
