I had similar problems long time ago. The stalling/engine cutoff problem was the speed sensor and the restarting problem was because of malfunctioning OVP (Overload Voltage Protection) relay. Before you change OVP relay, check the fuse on it. It is located where the diagnostic device connector is at least on my C280. OVP looks like a square plastic tube.

Good luck,
Arv.

i dont know what to do?
i tried checking the following:eek:vp relay,ignition coil ,fuel pump relay,distributer cap and they r all ok
i want to ask does it possible that the ignition coil gives good electricity but still the ignition coil is not working properly ?

Did you hear the engine pop back when the symptons changed, because it sounds as if you may have an air leak.
Check the breathers under the inlet manifold & the fuel metering head for correct fitment & condition.
