Hello, I have a 1996 SL500 that won't start after I parked it overnight. I don't know what happened but, I checked ignition system and there is sparked in the spark plug.
I further checked fuel pressure on the fuel manifold and there is enough pressure in it (40 plus psi). The engine runs if I sprayed starting fluid on intake manifold. I don't know what happened but, I think the there is an issue in my engine ECU.

Hi Ken, I saw a great 2003 SL500 at my local dealer today while getting a state inspection done on my 97 SL500. 2003 SL500, only 23,000 one-owner miles. Person traded it back to dealer when they picked up their new SLS "super car". Link to the dealer site is: Used 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class For Sale in Waco TX | CA008610A | Serving Temple, Marlin & Robinson, TX
PS. I have no stake whatsoever in the sale or this vehicle. I just think its a great car and a good deal for someone looking for a super clean 2003.
