Cold start problem
Have a C180 salon, manual, petrol, 1993 model., 110K miles.
Just had car service ( new plugs, filters,oil...), ball joints changex2; 4 new tyres, MOT passed;
however when starting the car in the morinings it would just turn and fire and ll Ok.
Now it turns but does not fire, have to press the accelerator pedal for it to fire and then it spluters and misfires, finally warms up for me to move in first gear but with very little to no power.
After about 3 mins the car warms up and all is OK - power back, no misfiring or splutering; however not as smoth as before but driveable.
Have checket the temp gauage sensro read 5K ohms cold and 20Ohms when hot.
Any ideas...manual states could be throttle body? any tips.
Hope you guys ( & gals) can help.
