jtd engine dies!!!!

hi im a newbie on here having recently bought my 156 jtd,i have had no problems till few days ago i had service done and day after that i was driving at about 70 when the engine just died on me so i drifted onto the hard shoulder,turned the key and it started straight away..did about 10 miles and it did it again and turned key and off i went again,did roughly 300 more miles with not a hint of trouble then driving down back road at about 20 mph and same thing again,since then ive done about another 50 miles with no problems..does anyone have any idea what it might be please as i have another long trip to make soon,thank you for any assitance you can give me ....

Sounds a bit like the crank sensor failing. Have a search through the forum for that.
