Looks like my injection pump was adjusted while the engine was on - which repairs?
My car has been having major running issues throughout 2015 and I've finally found a mechanic who could diagnose it. They've been testing it today and they've found that the screw behind the injection pump does nothing at all for the amount of fuel injected into the engine, CO levels were 8 times higher than they should be.
The car in question is a W108 280 SE with the M130 engine. It has always had cold running issues but never when hot.
If the injection pump WAS actually adjusted with the engine on by the previous owner, which repairs am I looking at? Will it be VERY expensive? I've checked the cost of a new injection pump from my Mercedes dealership and they want 11,500 dollars for it (yes, ~11k dollars).
Thank you for reading!
