New member thanks old members.

I drive a sprinter 311 cdi. 220,000 miles love it, best van Ive driven. About a month ago I started having problems with it. Driving on motorway engine would cut out, would restart after turning ignition off then back on, EDC light would come on. Problem got worse and worse. I was told by RAC that it was the fuel pump, changed pump, still had problem but not as bad, problem went away for a few weeks, thought it might have been bad fuel. Last week van would crank and start only to stop in a second or so with white/gray smoke from exhaust. Had RAC out again they spent along time on it and concluded it must be the fuel pump and left me to it. I searched the interweb and found this site I read similer stories and made a list of possiblities. I worked through the list and found the problem. Wiring loom shorting on the engine mounting. Cost of repair nothing, so a very big thank you to those that have contributed to this site.
