w 126 help

Hello I just found this forum because I have a problem with my coupe. I have had MB for maybe 30 years now but am stumped. My 1985 500 SEC runs great when it runs. But it will just die for no reason. Then when I try to restart, it will start and immediately die. After a while it will start and run fine. It is most certainly a fuel delivery problem. I can't drive it anywhere because it will just die. I changed the fuel filter and the pump is also AOK. Has anybody else experienced this? I also have a 1972 280 SEL 4.5.

Proceed to the W126 forum, but before you do, how is your fuel pump relay?
