Customer Question

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?
JA: 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.
Customer: My only complaint is that it is slow to start. I also get a fuel smoke on startup.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Maybe
JA: Is there anything else the Mercedes Mechanic should be aware of about your Mercedes?
Customer: I have just replaced the spark plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, had an evap leak repaired and it passed its smog test.
JA: Leaks can get messy. The Mercedes Mechanic will know what to do. 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.
