Does your induction coil is fine?

Seems fine, doesn't heat up or anything.

This is mind boggling. If i drive in town around speeds of 100km/h for the distance of 40 - 80km or more, there is no issue.

If i Get on the freeway, get up to speeds of around 120 km/h - 140km/h the engine temp does climb to around 90 degrees Celsius (Maybe a bit more) . and for a short distance around 40km, then it gives this warm start issue.

Indeed. Can you check if there is a spark when the engine is hot? Or if gasoline is reaching the engine when hot?

I'll do so. I'm just worried about being left on the side of the road because I will need to get it up to that temp

Angry

Still no progress here. I left the car to just stand in its place and don't even look in it's direction.

This weekend, Im dropping it off at an old school Merc mechanic and I hope to get it back soon for some care free driving. While it is there it will get a major service at the same time

Will post the findings here

Took the car to the mech on Sunday, a short 14km drive at low speeds and the engine temp was hovering around the 80 Degree mark. Pulled into his yard, switched off and tried to start it up again and it refused to swing.

So I'm glad that happened so he could see first hand what it does.

While it's there for that to be sorted I've asked him to do a full major service of the engine and gearbox too. Including setting the tappets etc.

No I sit and wait with much anticipation and hope

Collection Day

Will be collecting this today.

The Mech says the fuel pump relay was faulty. He drove it on the freeway for around 40km and says it started each time with no issue. I would hope this is the last of the headache and heartache here.

While it was there it had a major service too. So I'll report back by Monday after doing some serious mileage on it to see if we are now out of the red zone

Starting Issues

Hi, where did you buy the ignition control box from ?

I have the same motor in a G-Wagon and am experiencing similar problems. After short drive, switch off and wont start, no spark !
Here is my miracle: take a piece of wire from negative of coil to negative of battery and scrape it to make sparks while starter is turning (two man job) mine starts after couple of swings.
I think it excites something inside.
Dont know if my problem is ignition box, green wire or distributor.

Hey Rudi,

I'm using the original one again. That aftermarket one is really a stuk kak if you ask me.

So believe it or not, my mech pulled out the fuel pump relay, repaired that and it seems the car is running as normal again. Perhaps give that a try.
