  1. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    The car ran out of fuel on the road. When it happened I didn't suspect it was a fuel issue. Because the gauge was indicating ½ tank (still is) but when I knocked the tank it sounded empty. Then it was just cranking dry(no power bursts) but pump whirls when key is on. I topped 10 liters and it...
  2. W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Hello everyone, first post….I got a 420 sel I want to restore. The problem is that it won’t start. The person I bought it from said that is has fuel issues. When I put fuel in the carburetor it starts up but needs fuel to keep being sprayed to constantly keep running. It it the fuel distributor.
  3. W211 E-Class
    I was driving my 08 e550 4-matic sport just fine the night before I parked it at my house. Then the next morning my fuel pump wouldn’t prime and when I went to start it it sputtered like there was still some fuel pressure in the lines then died out. Swapped the relay and fuse with some extra...

  5. R170 SLK-Class
    Hi BenzWorld, A friend just gave me a 2000 SLK 320 with 101K miles on it that has been sitting in his garage for 5 years. The car on the outside is in good condition and aside from all the plastics on the interior turning to dust when touched the car looks sound. So here’s the issue, After...

    Hi, I'm working on my car myself and could use some input. Buckle up for the full timeline! EDIT: the ABS light also comes on a few minutes after turning on the car. Bought a single-owner 1989 300se in 2017. It got a new ovp relay in 2013 or so. EDIT: the relay is KAE so I'll be replacing it...

  8. W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    Ok... First thread but not a noob to cars. We took out 2016 GLE350 in for this code, after about 4 weeks and a lot of discussion on what was actually wrong with it and how to fix it at the MB dealership, it got fixed for a very pretty penny... So I was told... 3 weeks later this CEL poops it's...
  9. Diesel Discussion
    Hi Community, Again we are asking for your help/expertise, please. Our 1987 300TD Mercedes Wagon, Titan, will only start if nose is downhill. He just had all glow plugs and relay replaced and has a new battery. Cracked fuel lines at cannister fuel filter, no problem there, injector pump was...
  10. W201 190-Class
    I want to check my fuel/air mix on my car one of the reasons I might be having engine trouble. Checking other forum post and looking online all refer to setting the duty cycle using pin 2 and 3 on the 9 pin socket when I went to try this I found out the socket doesn't have pin 3. Any idea why...
  11. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hello! I had a bunch of weird starting problems, bit rough running and extremely poor km/l (around 5-6km/l). I bought this car for about 5 months ago, I bought it after it had been sitting still for 10 years. I am very close to the man I bought it from, and before I bought it we did some work on...
  12. W210 E-Class
    This car is giving me a bigger headache than my e320 w211 ! Fuel pressure comes and goes randomly so fuel filter was replaced and now I’m getting the pump but I ordered a pre facelift fuel pump and my w210 is a post facelift Will it fit? What’s the difference? Can I make it fit they have none...
  13. Vintage Mercedes-Benz to end of 1976
    Good evening! I have been stuck for more than a month by a non-functional fuel pump. Specifically, the brush holders in the fuel pump have each lost a foot, and therefore don't hold the brush in place. I've been to Bosch shops, electric motor repair shops, emailed old parts sources, and even...
  14. Vintage Mercedes-Benz to end of 1976
    Still working to get my '71 280SE on the road. I'm in the process of rebuilding the leaky, varnish-filled fuel pump, and found that the brush holders only had one leg each. Having looked at the price of a rebuilt pump, I am really hoping that someone has a source for these, or maybe an approach...
  15. R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I have a 1976 450 SLC which has been parked up for more than 10 years. I am trying to get it going again and there is a fuel delivery issue. I don't have a workshop manual so I am kind of flying blind here. I checked the ignition spark and that is fine. I then cracked open the forward...
  16. R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I just bought my 1985 Mercedes 380SL and have been trying to diagnose why it doesn’t start. I thought it was a no brainer to assess the fuel delivery and potential electrical problems first. The car cranks when the key is turned but won’t turn over. I diagnosed that the car had a bad fuel pump...

  19. W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Hi all! I have a 1980 280S with the carburated M110 engine without electric fuel pumps. I have some starting issues that are related to the fuel delivery system. I have two electric fuel pumps from a W124 300E and I was wondering if there is a way I can install these pumps into my car to fix...
  20. R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I think I've narrowed my issues with lack of power, poor fuel economy, and super rough idling to a clogged fuel distributor. I would rather not purchase a new/refurbished part, or take it apart myself to avoid really screwing it up. I've seen other threads where people have suggested soaking the...
