Talking Warm Starting Problem w210

Ok, I know we've seen this a few times before. I have a 97 E420 that has problems (had starting once the engine was warm. FIXED!!!. Aparrently there was a crack in the Charcoal cannister by the Fuel tank & the fuel shutoff valve was malfunctioning. Replaced all including the Fuel Tank Cap and no more starting problems.... $790.00 later at the dealership that is.

Hope this helps anyone who has the same problem.

Also had a small leak in the A/C Evaporator and the freon would last only 3-4 weeks. MB wanted $3500.00 to fix. Had a friend put in some leak stop (Superleak Stop $29.00), 2 Lbs of freon ($28.00), and some UV dye ($6.00) and so far so good. Do the math.

starting problem

I've a E240 1999 with starting problem which I keep thinking is fuel related. When I put in more fuel it may start straight away or about 20 min later... Why would a new cap fix problem (as you stated)... Tested pump/relay all ok when it won't start there is no power to pump as if some sensor is telling system not to power up pump... Did your problem mainly happen on low fuel? Or did it not matter...
