RE: SLK230 starts and runs fine for 5-10mins then it cuts off and will not restart - plz read more b
We have a 86 Toyota Corolla that has a carb. Starts super and choke setup works great. But if you try to drive it away before it is well warmed up and then some (15 minutes maybe) it will die and not restart for about 20 minutes to 1/2 hour. Can't figure out what it is but it is a complicated set of relays, selinoids, vacuum hoses galore so we just live with it. Try letting it warm up for a bit longer. Other than that its obviously electrical so work backwards. What power do you have when it stops and what dont you have, etc.... Could be something in the wiring of the ignition if you are getting no starter, etc.
