Question about 1993 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 300 Class

1 Answer

The engine after starting acts like the throttle is wide open

H2O was added to my fuel tank. (**** hurt Y chromosome) The tank and injectors and the injector pump was all cleaned out however it appears as though the pump was taken apart a little more than it should have been and im now told that thats where the timing is set and it should have not been disassembled. However, damage is done and Im just looking for a solution or directions to re time. its a 1980 300D

  1. whoever opened your pump obviously did not have the necessary knowledge call ''ROVAN DIESEL'' AND ASK FOR HELP. Tell them what you did and ask for help and next time make sure the mechanic you use has a diesel license.

SOURCE: cold start valve problem

if you have an electric cold start valve make sure to unplug it and if keeps apling fuel with electrical conector unpluged that means the valve is not good, but if not then you have an electronic problem, possible a bad cold start sensor or cold start module or cicuit problem, and might be a time to take it to an electrical shop

SOURCE: mercedes E300 turbodiesel, 1999, is poor to start

Yes sir , you have a failing valve, soon it will snap in two....please have your head checked. You can do this yourself by placing a long-handed screwdriver , business end down to each cylinder while pressing your ear to the handle(while engine is running)...you will notice a definite difference when you hit which cylinder has the bad valve. Also makes sure the egr valve is clean and your exhaust recycle valve is not stuck.( located in the crossover pipe)

Starting Mode
With the ignition switch in the ON position, before engaging the starter, the PCM energizes the fuel pump relay for 2 seconds allowing the fuel pump to build up pressure. The PCM first tests speed density, then switches to the mass air flow (MAF) sensor. The PCM also uses the engine coolant temperature (ECT), the throttle position (TP), and the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensors to determine the proper air/fuel ratio for starting. The PCM controls the amount of fuel delivered in the starting mode by changing the pulse width of the injectors. This is done by pulsing the injectors for very short times.
Clear Flood Mode
If the engine floods, clear the engine by pressing the accelerator pedal down to the floor and then crank the engine. When the throttle position (TP) sensor is at wide open throttle (WOT), the PCM reduces the injector pulse width in order to increase the air to fuel ratio. The PCM holds this injector rate as long as the throttle stays wide open and the engine speed is below a predetermined RPM. If the throttle is not held wide open, the PCM returns to the starting mode .
You could have a dirty or bad mass air flow sensor .
You could have

leaky injector/s is flooding motor, mechanically clean or replace. And clean throttle body while you are at it with spray cleaner. Should be almost spotless where large throttle valve opens and closes.

There can be a misfire too from the cylinders.

An engine that hesitates, stumbles or misfires when accelerating or when it is under load is an engine that is either sucking too much air, not getting enough fuel or misfiring. If the Check Engine Light comes on, you may find any of the following codes:

• P0171, P0174 Lean fuel condition codes
• P0120 to P0124 Throttle position sensor codes
• P0222 to P0229 Throttle position sensor codes
• P0400 to P0409 EGR related codes

If there are no misfire codes, a common cause of acceleration stumble is a bad throttle position sensor (TPS). The TPS tells the computer how far the throttle is open. The computer uses this information to determine how much fuel is needed to maintain the correct air/fuel mixture and when extra fuel is needed if the throttle suddenly opens wide.

Another common cause is dirty fuel injectors. If varnish deposits have built up in the tips of the injectors, they won’t spray as much fuel as they normally do, or will “dribble” fuel instead of spraying a fine mist. This creates a lean fuel mixture and conditions that are ripe for stumble and hesitation (also misfire). Look at short term fuel trim (STFT) and long term fuel trim (LTFT) with your scantool. If the numbers are high, it tells you the engine is running lean and the injectors need cleaning. Treat mild cases with a high quality fuel-injector cleaner additive. Severe cases require professional cleaning equipment.

Also if this sensors apply to your vehicle, camshaft sensor or crankshaft sensor if sensors bad you don't get any spark. Also run a scan on the car.

Good luck and rate this solution, please.

I have a 1989 Ford F-150 with a 302 engine fuel injected


Does that engine have a TPS (throttle position sensor)? If so, disconnect it from the engine and connect an ohmmeter to it, to check for jumps or bad spots at any position, from throttle closed to throttle wide open ... of course, with the engine OFF! There is a possibility that you have "slow" fuel injectors (meaning they may be gummed-up, so they react too slow to pulse width changes. But that could be cured by running a can of Seafoam through the tank, as long as the injectors are not damaged or leaking. Check the fuel pressure at the injector rails (if in fact it uses fuel injectors, which I don't actually know). It might have a carburetor, at that age. If so, how is the choke linkage ... perhaps stiff?
