RE: Stalling

And it was working fine before the new cap/rotor/wires? So much for PM…

Does it stall any other time or only from a standing start? There may be a problem with the MAS control unit which among other things controls the fuel pump. With those miles it may also be the fuel pump going out.

RE: Stalling

Post on the w126 forum. I have the same year and model as you. I had a similar problem in the past with mine. I cant remember exactly how I fixed it, but I am sure you could find some info with a search. (search button is on the upper right hand side of page)
