I am having a problem which i suspect is electronic related. I just bought a 1991 300 SE. The car is in great shape with 167k miles. When i bought the car it ran well it died driving it home and after having it towed home i went through the fuse box hoping to find a lose fuel pump relay or something. Don't know what i did but after this is started right up and ran fine for a few days. Then i hosed out the engine compartment. Let it sit a little then it started right up. It ran for about 15 minuted then choked and died. The car sat for 4 or so days. I removed the spark plugs to inspect for proper spark, Yes. I removed the fuel Hose from the (i believe Jettronic) fuel system. There is ample fuel being delivered to the system. WHen i put everything back together it started right up. I drove it around to see if i could get it to die and after 5-10 minutes it choked and died again. Any Ideas? Anyone encounter this type of problem?


Thanks Everyone!
