Rob from Clayton NC

Hey guys, finally after 22 years of looking I bought my 88 560sel. She is a beautiful black with a grey interior. She was not running when I first looked at her in the garage it has been sitting in for 2 years. After reading the forums on here I replaced the battery and both fuel pumps. The 560 roared to life. I was excited until 2 miles down the road and it became sluggish and stall. Fired right back up and went another 2 miles and stallled. Well, off to the tech forum to see if iI missed something. Thanks for the great resource. Rob J
