2006 touring wagon engine stalls

I have owned a 2006 touring wagon for 4 years it has had a consistent problem with the engine stalling more recently this has happened whilst driving. The computer has been replaced as well as all the engine coils. The dealership say it's like looking for "a needle in a haystack" the car has spent a significant amount of time at the service centre since Nov 2015 with no clear solution. They say no codes have been stored. Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if it is connected to the fuel tank as it happens when the tank is at any level ie half or a quarter full. I think most vehicles with the fuel tank problem had issues with stalling after tank had been filled. Thanks for the advice!

Have the throttle body cleaned,get a can of seafoam and
dump it in a full tank of gas.Seafoam can be found at any
auto supply store.Give the car a spirited drive.

If you are taking the power out;you are putting the fuel in.There is no free lunch.

You haven't said whether your engine is petrol or diesel.

Have just noticed your reference to "engine coils" - so presumably petrol.

OK. If you had the CRD, I would have suggested looking at the crankshaft sensor, as this has been known to fail intermittently, but usually during cold starts and furthermore, no fault codes are recorded. Presumably, petrol engines must have a similar sensor, so you could ask your service centre if this has been checked, together with associated wiring and connector. I should imagine this would have been their first port of call.

Other suggestions are blocked fuel filter, poor quality fuel, intermittent fuel pump, dirty air filter, although I think some of these would have triggered fault codes.
