Thanks! it's a 1983 MB 380SL...the fuel distributor is sending too much gasoline to the cylinders. It floods them.

Sorry, I don't think I'm understanding how this service works. I'll call them tomorrow to figure it out...I was under the impression that for $41.00 I would keep on getting access to expert until issue would be completely resolved.

correct but with this issue here more extensive time will be needed. You did request a phone conversation and that is a premium service!! hence the proposed offer. hopefully this clarifies things!!
