300 E hard starting
I have an "88' 300 E that has been in a front end accident. the car runs beautifully when warm, but after sitting overnite, it takes 20-30 tries to get it to start and keep running. Any ideas where to look 1st?
Also, the wires in the fuel gage sender are broken so it reads MT all the time. Is it possible to just buy the wire somewhere and solder it in?
Unrelated, but i took the air cleaner off and started the engine and gas shot out of the vacuum line (1/8") going to the cam cover/air cleaner. Is this normal? I was afraid that it was going to catch fire and burn down the house (the hell with the car,LOL)
Any ideas? thanks, Pete Walls, Camas, WA (email@example.com)[:(]
