W108 - idle/warm start problem
I am having trouble with my w108. M117 4.5 L
Engine starts nice when cold, even when it is very cold - below 0.
Drive the car 30 miles, stop and restart. Still fine. Idle is a bit rough - which should not be on a V8.
However, if I turn off the warm engine off for 5 to 10 minutes, then I have real trouble restarting.
Feels like running on 3 pots only....once I get thru this , runnig fine again
So far I did:
- new spark plugs
- new air filter
- clean contacts in distributor
- replaced all injectors (to make sure I would not have dripping ones )
problem still exists
Any hints ?
Thanks a lot
