450SEL hard starting

M117 4,520cc V8, Bosch K-Jetronic

Engine runs like a Rolex when running, but it can take up to 10 seconds for it to fire up and it needs to be revved or it may stall just after the starter catches. After the hard start there are ZERO problems.

Any thoughts? Going to go through my Bosch book as well.

Thanks,

Tory

RE: 450SEL hard starting

Try using jumper leads from a fully charged battery as the difference in starting with a full current flow/ full voltage can be dramatic.
