Why is my van cutting out after I had the head gasket changed?

I had the head gasket on my Peugeot Boxer changed, but on the way home (after about five miles) it decided to lose power and cut out. No lights came on the dashboard, it just went dead. After a couple of minutes it started and I got about 30 yards before it cut out again. Any idea what's wrong with it?

If it was done by a garage, we'd suggest that you get back to them to resolve it. If you did the job yourself, you should check for any coolant leaks, check for a spark at the plugs and make sure fuel is getting to the Injectors.
