1989 300SE is running badly.

Hi Everyone, I own a 89 300SE, have had the car for about 10 years, second owner and the car is in amazing condition... It's been parked for about three years as I had a very weird problem come up with it mechanically, and my hope is that I can get some help from you guys to figure out the problem, as I miss driving it so much.

What it is doing is very odd, it will be running great, then the ABS light will light up in the dash area, when it lights up the car runs horrible, engine miss, no power, cold start problem, etc...

The light was coming on more and more over time, and now is on pretty much all the time! I was driving it yesterday for the first time in month's and it was running ruff, as the ABS light was on, then all of a sudden the light went off and the car ran great for about 5 min, at which time the ABS light came back on, and back to running ruff???

Any thought or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated as I love this car and want to start driving it again on a regular basis..

Thanks in advance,

James Gale
