Hello I'm an M.B. tech.. It sounds like the fuel strainer is clogged. It is a very common problem on M.B. diesel engines of that era. Diesel fuel develops algea inside the fuel tank and after a period of time it clos the strainer. The strainer is at the bottom of the fuel tank where the big fuel hose attatches to the tank. The hose unscrews frome the strainer and then the strainer unscrews from the tank. There is a filter on the strainer that can be cleaned and reinstalled. In the engine compartment there is a small primer pump that is by the fuel rack inline with the feed hose from the tank. If you turn the knob(clear or white plastic) on the pump it will retract allowing you to use it as a hand pump. If when attempting to retract hand pump it is sucked back down and will not stay retracted that means you have a restriction in the line- your fuel strainer is clogged is the most likley problem. replace both fuel filters during repair for best results. Good Luck

I own a mercedes benz 190d and the problem is the tranny will shift out of gear after a couple miles. After sitting idling for a little while it drives fine again for another couple mile. I was wondering...


The selector switch on the side of the transmission might need a slight adjustment as it sounds like your transmission is borderline Park / Neutral. Generally the vacuum, or rather its absence, is to keep the transmission in a low gear for longer when the car is under load when accelerating; low vacuum in the inlet plenum a petrol engine = accelerating load = delayed gear up shift; on the diesel the vacuum system mimics this effect.

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.

My 1988 300 se wont start. turns over and may


The fuel shut off valve is not getting the correct amount of vacuum OR the fuel shutoff valve is failing.

You will need 1/2 to go over EVERY SINGLE vacuum line and check for leak.

Even it's look OK. Give it a little push to ensure 100% seal connection.


If this does not help then the vacuum switch next to the steering lock (behind dash) may be leaking or failing.

The switch is about $36 from the Mercedes dealer.


Good luck

I have a 1986 190D Mercedes-Benz, the problem i'am having is i have to keep my car over half full of fuel in order for it to start right away. If its less than half full of fuel my car won't start right...


Check your fuel pump pressure. You can rent a fuel pressure gauge from autozone and check pressure coming from supply pump. I bet its weak. Hope this helps.
