Engine randomly dies with easy restart.
When my wife drives the E320 it usually dies. Sometimes it dies in the driveway. Sometimes it dies while merging into traffic or coasting down a hill. It always starts right up.
No check engine light.
I resoldered the K40 relay board and thought it was fixed and thought I was a genius. But no, I am not a genius, it died again.
So I bought and installed a NEW K40 relay module. Thought it was fixed. Nope. I drove it trouble free for three days. She jumps in and can't even get out of the driveway.
It has new tires, new accessories, new ac...new steering rack, new conductor board in trans, new bushings everywhere... POS ! My old dodge omni is more reliable any day.
I would think fuel problem but it does not have classic fuel issue failure mode. Lots of power. I'm going to try changing the fuel filter next if I can find it.
Any ideas anyone?
