Local Shop that can work on my 86 190E 2.3-16v
I'm seeking recommendations from the community to find a good shop/mechanic in the Laurel, MD area (or in a 50 mile radius) that has expertise to work on my '86 16v. I'm not sure if some of the shop previously mentioned in this tread are still operating in my area, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask again.
The car ran fine up until a year ago and then after sitting for about a month it wouldn't start. It's been in the garage since, and from time to time I would change out a few parts believed to be the source of the problem and attempt fire it up. NO LUCK so far! I've so far replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors, and fuel distributor with no success. Good news is fuel is not the issue.. good flow/pressure at the injectors. Plug wires and plugs were also replaced. The engine turns over fine and it attempts to fire up, but that only for a sec. before shutting down. I played around with the AF mixture, but could have likely made it worse. Time to call in a pro!
Since the car is not currently running, it will have to be towed to local shop to be diagnosed and fixed. I'm looking for any shops in the immediate area that has experience working on these cars. Grateful for any suggestions you might have! THANKS!
