Lou, I replaced the rotors...
Lou, I replaced the rotors, distributor caps and forward cam sensor in my 1990 500sl. I put 2 containers of Techron in a full tank of gas and let it sit for a week. It started right up (rough idle) and I can rev the engine by cracking open the throttle
-but- when I try to drive the car it wants to stall. Any idea?
