If it runs for 15 minutes after a cold start, it is probably when the electronic control module goes from preset (default settings) to closed loop control. It is likely a sensor somewhere (Crank position sensor, cam position sensor) that is bad, which confuses the control module when the switchover after warm-up ocurrs. Did the "Check Engine" light turn on? Read the codes (Autozone will read for free) and see if that gets it. I had the same sort of thing happen, and it was the crank position sensor. The "Check Engine" light didn't light until after several ocurrences. Fuel filter plugged up..

Reset check engine light on 96 Ford Explorer?

Disconnect the battery cable for about 10 minutes and the light will be reset. If it comes on again after driving, it's a recurring problem and you can get the codes read and hopefully fix the problem.

If you try immediately after it has turned off it may be vapor locked. The diesel will become gaseus and will be in the form of vapor which will not ignite correctly. It should, of course start immediately. Just let it set for several minutes then try again.

When your heart stops for 20 minutes can you ever live again?

Death is medically defined as cesation of the heart beating. Once the heart has stopped beating, you have between 2-6 minutes to get the heart restarted before mild to severe brain damage occurs. During this time, performing CPR can stave off the effects to some extent. In other words, if a person has a heart attack and their heart has stopped, performing CPR on the downed person will sustain the brain getting the necessary oxygen to stay alive as well the allow the heart to perfuse or send blood to vital organs throughout the body. However if the heart is not able to be restarted during this time, then the person is dead. So to Answer the question, if someone is "down" for 20 minutes, with their heart stopped, and it is restarted, there is an extremely high probability of irreversible brain damage/persistent vegetative state. In other words, they are brain dead and not alive even though their heart is still beating. So . . . NO a person cannot live again after their heart has been stopped for 20 minutes.
