91 300E 2.6 Stalls after temp goes up around 90-95C

My wife's 91 300E 2.6 stalls once the temperature goes above 90-95 deg c.
It will crank but wont start. I have to wait until the temperature goes back down to below 80 deg c. and it will start fine with no problems.
I've replaced the fans (one of them was not working, so I replaced both), also replaced the thermostat.
I have no idea of what's wrong. I think there might be an overtemp switch that controls everything else & once it heats up, it shuts ignition and fuel pump until its back down to lower temps.
The car has 190K miles on it, and other than this stalling problem, we've never had a problem with it. This is the best car we've ever owned.
Does anybody have any idea of what it might be.
Thanks in advance
