Unhappy E320cdi 2000 Sudden stop and then no start?

Hi well this is my 1st MB and only had 2 days when all seemed fine was in heavy traffic engine cut out took a couple of times to restart then did 20ft to hard sholder and died again ..no smoke or noise just wouldnt not start turned over fine and did fire up but straight off again,called recovery . guy tested to see if fuel was getting through but only small amounts ,Have sent to Merc Specialist who i dont know ,he has had a day and a half and sez needs to look at more but seems to think is engine ECU ,wondered if anyone here had any ideas? Thanks

Your MB specialist sounds pretty slow or maybe he is very busy right now. If he has the MB STAR diagnostic software the diagnosis step(s) should only take a few minutes. The ECU is an expensive part so if he is guessing I'd be questioning his abilities about now.
