Need Help, My Merc Cannot Starts
Hello to all you guys..
I'm a new member and would like to ask a big favour from you guys...
I'm driving an 230E and recently the car overheat. it still can be drive and i drove it home. on my way home, the car's engine suddenly stop and when i try to start it again it cannot be started.
I found out from a friend that i need to change the thermo sensor located infront of the engine linked to the water jacket inlet and thermostat. so i changed the thermostat and the sensor. luckily i can start the engine.
so i decided to test run the car. so sad that after running the car for around 15 minutes, the engine once again had stop running and i cannot start it anymore but it doesn't overheat during the test drive. so i have to tow it back to my house.
After two days i try to start it again and it can start. at first run the engine stops after within 5-10 sec, then i lock the car and re openned and starts it again and it runs for about 15-20 minutes and it stops again... i would like to ask anyone of you guys having or have been to this kind of situation to share it with me coz i don't want to send the car to the Merc Centre.
is it something to do with the fuel pump coz i can crank the engine but it doesn't starts. the starting sounds like it has no fuel injected to the engine.
Hope you guys can Help.
