New on this site, 560 SEL being BAAAAAD

Hello, My name is Jennifer from Seattle. My husband and I have a 1988 560 SEL. This is our first benz. We aquired it from the original owner. It have been a great car until it had a serious fuel leak near the gas tank. Then started a serious hesitation/rough idle/air pump clicking causing surging. Its losing power fast and we cant for the life of us figure it out. With this economy we need to try and do it ourselves! we are mechanically enclined, we have classic hotrod shop where we do plenty of work on older american cars, absolutely not related to our current benz!!!!!!!!

We have been searching this site for quite sometime now, and figure it would be great to get introduced!

Thank you
