My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

Check your coolant, oil, and fuses at the battery box. If these are good, then you only other option at this point is to check and see what codes are stored and you will need a scanner for that. Usually when the engine shuts down, it is fuel, oil, coolant, or pressure related on the 3. Otherwise it is an electrical fault and the computer will be needed on the other faults. I wish it was easier on these, but it isn't.

I do not believe it set a code . Light is out now

It is due Oil Change will change that and see Delo 400 LE is what I run,
Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

Delo is good oil.

You might have a thin oil issue if you are due for oil change soon which is what is probably causing the amber engine light. The oil has worn down a little bit giving a low oil presure or there is some debris caught in the oil and it got trapped over a sensor. It can happen a lot with these engines and make a tech/driver very frustrated when they come and go like that.

Changed oil and filter, Fuel filters Pri & Sec . Engine started and ran until warm shut off with Key to recheck levels . Will not restart. While changing oil filter I Did find a small Spring and a plastic Plunger that broke off something in the oil filter housing !!!! ??????????
Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

In the housing itself? That would be the check valve that keeps the engine primed. That would be the cause. I would change the whole housing for the threads didn't hold which means they are stripped. That will keep it from restarting for the oil can;t stay primed in the injectors.
