1988 mercedes 190 e only runs if I dump fuel down the carburator then dies. Its not getting fuel for some reason.


The fuel pump has gone bad in it. It's time to replace it. I'm sure that the carb. is fine since you can dump fuel down it and it will run for a short time. Fuel just isn't getting into the carb. for the car to run right.

Have you checked the fuel pressure? It needs at least 55 psi or it won't even try to start.
