The crankshaft position sensor is faulty. Over time with age the crankshaft position sensor it will become hot and read incorrectly, causing stalling conditions when hot and crank no start when hot as well. replace this sensor and your vehicle will be as good as new.

We changed the crankshaft position sensor and has not stalled again. Thank you
Hello Ralph, the other week my wife was driving her 2005 ML350 and it completely shut off and stalled at 35mph... it took dealer 5 days of driving the car and the finally replaced the position sension P/N code 003-153-28-28. The car only has 57212 miles and is not under warranty? The dealer charged me $660 to get this fixed this is a safety issue? were you charged for your repair?
My 2000 ML55 Did the same thing It was was the fuel pump . I found out after changing the Crank sensor and a tune up . I got it replaced by a dealer I payed the labor and mercedes provided the pump at no cost,
