2001 ML320 rough/hard start
So recently my 2001 ml320 has been acting up again. This time the car is very hard to start. Once you turn the ignition the car turns over but keeps turning over for at least 10 seconds before it finally starts. A way around this is if you turn the key to start it let it turn over for 3-5 seconds stop and then restart it it starts right up again. If you let the car sit for anything more then 10 minutes it does this. Otherwise if you shut it down and restart right after you do the above it starts right up. It is a pretty consistent issue which baffles me.
I'm guessing maybe its the fuel pump? another person suggested its the cps? I have replaced the cps in the past and was about to again, but just wanted to make sure that is a good route to go otherwise I'd be throwing $50 down the drain.
Anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Also somebody did a hit and run on me recently and hit my front driver side fender. I have a feeling my deductible will be more than doing it myself. Anyone know where I can get a Driver Side Front Fender Silver for cheap?
