My wagon is shutting off around town. I had a similar problem in a Volvo 745 which turned out to be a fuel system relay.

Does the Benz suffer a similar problem?

Where do I start? Fuel filter? In tank screen?

I am new to working on this car and don't really know what it has or what its problem areas are.

The Benz has been doing this for the last year but maybe once a month. The other day it happened 4 times within an hour. Now its getting to be a bit more of a dangerous problem. Gotta haul the kids around.


Thanks

Dave

Try doing a search in the W124 forum on "OVP" or "idle control valve." I've seen this topic covered numerous times in there.

Ah,check my topic 'Fuel pump relay location?' in the 126 forum last Friday.I had exactly the same symptoms as you and stupidly ignored it until the SOB stranded me.Even the guys at the spares shop says its avery common problem.
