cuts out on warm up

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and already impressed by the very useful answers posted here.

Mine is a '98 C230 that shuts down within about 10 minutes after starting. It seems to want to fire up again but can't. Prior to cutting off, it runs great.

From a variety of sources, it may be any of the following:

>fuel shortage
>altenator shut-down
>clogged catalytic converter
>trouble with throttle body

Is there anything else I should look for, or where do I begin?

RE: cuts out on warm up

I have an older model 1987 190e model and it did something similar to what your saying. It turned out to be the ovp (over voltage protection) relay. The fuse on top was blown. It only took me 3-400 dollars of MB techs guessing but I finally figured it out. It was only a 10 cent problem. But anyways, try to look for that if your car still has one. I don't know how much the stuff has changed in a decade but u never know.
