Ahhh, the constipation theory. Might be worth a shot.

You may be right with the cat. Steph's Saturn ran like shit, I looked up the code when the check engine light came on and sure enough, time to replace that bad boy. It was a bitch getting the old one off, I had to cut off three of the bolts and drill it out, but once the new one was on it ran fine.

The other thing that came to mind is the fuel regulator, but I don't know if the 190's had one. I had a very similar problem in my 126 that a new fuel regulator solved.

clkman man is full of kaka, I have a brand new cat converter in there thanks to GS unless he sent me a crappy one then you guys are just in a crapshoot mode.
I did wake up this morning with a bunch of pussies on top of me looking for warmth and comfort. They purred too

It has a fuel pressure regulator off of the fuel distributor. On my W126 when that one went out it actually leaked gasoline via the vacuum hose connected to the breather hose. The 190e has a similar configuration and the hose is dry. I have no way of telling if it's not working other than leaking or having a typical failure symptom of said device.

It's a pressure thang

The fuel regulator was a common source of problems for the early CIS cars (again, pressure related), but Drew's 201 has CIS-E, which has incorporated that feature into the fuel distributor. Harbor Freight has an inexpensive fuel injection test kit, which I believe has the appropriate fittings and switch valve for testing CIS injection pressures. I'm pretty sure it's a cheap knock-off of the Snap-On version I own.

I am going to the junkyard and then to Harbor Freight today, those are on my agenda. Any suggestions what I should be cannibalizing from some junked 190E and what else I need to get from HF?

If the price is right, you should consider grabbing the fuel injection ECU and fuel distributor. Also, a spare fuel pump and accumulator would be nice.

Have you replaced the coolant temp and O2 sensors, yet?

My fuel pump and O2 sensor are new. I haven't installed a new coolant temp but that's on my mind. I did however replace the fan clutch temp sensor a few days after I got the car and I managed to eliminate the overheating (no more than 100c) problem the previous owner had.

I will be on the lookout for the ecu and distributor but those could be a crapshoot at a junkyard you know
I will try to get the whole intake and related knickknacks from a car if I find one.
