I've a lot of troubles with my car, a 300TE from 1989.
For the last few months my car started stalling when the engine is cold.
Even though I live in the Caribbean and normal tempratures are 30 degrees celsius.
For some reason the car stopped working all together a week ago. Funny thing is that the car still starts when I put it in Neutral. I used to started in my car in Park.
A friend of mine suggested it might be the voltage overload protection relay. I have checked that and found out that one of the two 10Amp fuses on it was broken.
Saturday I changed all the sparks, air filter and replace the broken fuse. The first time I tried to started was a direct success. Normally I would have to keep starting for like 2 seconds, this time it was maybe a 0.1 of a second.
After reving up the engine and running it, I went for a test drive. After 2 corners the car stalled. Started it right away, could get home but that was about it.
