Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

I would start by having an injector leak off test done,your problems sound fuel pressure related to me.A test shouldn't be expensive,it will only take half an hour or so and will show up any injectors that are leaking pressure.

Have you checked the stop damper butterfly valve on the inlet manifold?

If it sticks closed the engine wil have insufficient air to run for any length of time - if stuck open the engine will tend to run on during engine shut-down.

No gaurantee that's your problem but it is any easy to check.:)

thanks,
I'd previously cleaned the egr valve after reading posts on here ,cleaned damper at same time.Maybe iI'll change vacum pipes to damper in case they are degrading,its aq real pain with the fault being intermitent
