Default Not starting

Hello all,

I have a 2004 2.2 limited touring that is not starting. The engine does turn over. It starts from cold but after some driving it will not re-start.
Have had Green Flag out a few times and they spray easy start into the pipe that leads to the engine and that gets it going.
Chrysler dealership have had it for a fortnight and could not find a fault and of course, Sod's law, it started perfectly every time they tried it. They found no error codes either.

Appreciate any advice.

Yours is a diesel, right?
So, no spark issues....
Since starting fluid helps, try an injector cleaner.
I had a diesel long ago, and cold starting was what it didn't like...

I would suggest checking fuel pressure after it wont start . Do you let the tank get down to empty before refilling?
