Customer Question
I hae been told...

I hae been told I need to replace the part just behind the throttle body on my 1977 Mercedes 450SL. Is that a separate part and where can I buy it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mercedes. The Mercedes Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

My only complaint is that it is slow to start. I also get a fuel smoke on startup.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Maybe

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mercedes Mechanic should be aware of about your Mercedes?

I have just replaced the spark plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, had an evap leak repaired and it passed its smog test.
