Unhappy help?????

hello my name is roids


i own a mercedes benz 1986 230e

i have a problem after driving for half and hour or so the car decides to turn off and has trouble starting again...... it does this all the time. I took it to a mechanic he told me it was a computer problem and could not give me a price to fix it..... Im an apprentice so my wage is very low and i can not afford to pay to find out excatly what is wrong with the car... it is not over heating so it is something major im thinking.... can anyone tell me what it could be is there, and is there a easy way to fix it... or is there a different engine i can stick into it...... like an old ford engine or something.....

thankyou

You may wish to post this in the W123 forum found in the pull down menu at the bottom of this page, I think that is correct for your car. Those members with similar cars are better suited to help you specifically as models vary significantly from one another. Good luck.

Actually, it's a W124.

It might depend on where you are, but here, the 280E is listed as a W123. The W124 series is mentioned as beginning in 1986, but no 280E is listed under that heading.

The 1986 230e is a W124 worldwide.

Your model knowledge is impressive, but nowhere in his post does the OP mention anything about any 280E.

LOL, I see that now. He said he has a 230E - thanks for the correction flyboyike!
