My 1985 380sl
stopped starting one morning. It sounds like it will start at any minute., but seems flooded. It had been tuned up. Rebuilt fuel distributor, new fuel pump, filter, etc. I was told that while I am cranking the engine, black smoke comes out of the exhaust
. Pouring gas down the throttle body does not work.
JA: How many miles are on the car? How has your mileage been lately?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes, one day it was running, the next morning, it didn't start. I thought it was out of gas.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I put gad in it, starting fluid, gas in TB I also swapped-out a working cold start injector.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Mercedes Mechanic should know about your Mercedes?
Customer: That's about it.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mercedes Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
