Hi, my name is ***** ***** for your question

Does it start right back up after it dies out or what do you need to do to restart?

Any lights come on before it shuts down?

Any fault codes on dash?

Let me know

The serial is JCB0818C02334774. Before shutting down it give a buzzing sound and light up. However it starts immediately once I restart it.

Thanks for info

There are 3 things that would cause shut down and be able to re start

Low coolant level Check radiator and overflow tank to make sure level is good

If levels are good you may have a bad low coolant probe

Low oil pressure Check oil level and smell oil on dipstick,, if it has any feul smell oil is diluted and needs to be changed and the source of dilution need to be found, most likely would be a fuel transfer pump

High coolant temperature, Make sure coolant temp is not getting above 210 degrees

Gauges are not always accurate you would want to verify accuracy of gauge by using a digital temp gun

and compare readings pointing at block to dash gauge.

Check and tighten engine belts.
