Hello all. I am new to the list so forgive me if this topic has been gone over before.<br>
<br>
My 280sl Euro runs really rough when first started no matter the outside temp. If I try to give it gas it will stall and die. However, once it warms up she runs like a champ. Has anyone experienced this before?

Same thing happens to me on my '73 450SLC.<br> I think it's the valves. I think mine needs a valve job. When first started when cold, a puff of blue smoke comes out, rough idles, clicking of the valves, but then after warms up for about 5-10 minutes, everything smooths out and runs like a top. If started up and just driven, will miss, sputter, lots of smoke comes out. But has 223K on the odometer!!<br> I really think time for a upper rebuild...
