thanks for thr reply
the post from koan was not on my thread but on a thread about a similar problem of warm starting.
when i checked the return hose , hot engine, engine off and fuel system pressurised, i had a container collecting drips and it stopped at about 50ml so probably not enough to cause a problem?
the car starts fine cold drives fine except for a mis at low revs when warm,
when warm the car takes a long time to start 5 seconds crank and then it idles very low for 10+ seconds and if i put it in drive it wants to stall, but after this it gets up to a decent idle and drives fine. i have the idle set at 850 in park and 700 in drive which helps.
i have found a mechanic who has good experience with old mercedes owning a green 450sel himself so i will give him a call today and ask him to take a look
i have probably been doing too much tinkering on this car and it needs to be set correctly
