W124 1986 230E & 1991 300E
I would like to thank members of this forum for the fantastic advice given here. I have been experiencing some major starting issues with my 230E W124. I was able to solve early morning starts by replacing the OPV. However I was also experiencing a warm start issue. After driving for a while, when I switched off and tried to restart within 10 minutes or so, no problem, but if I tried after that time I would have to keep tumbling and after about 10 tries, it would finally start. It was eventually solved when I replaced the fuel accumulator. It now starts instantly on each and every try! I hope this post helps others that may be experiencing similar problems.
