Question about Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Hi i have a merc cdi 220 cdi ,if i dont use car for a day or so then when i do start car it swings for more than 30 seconds then eventually starts and wen i look under the car it leaks diezel from somewhere in engine but im not sure y .the car runs perfectly well accepts for delayed start and diesel leak please advise
This will almost certainly be the plastic fuel pipes connected to the fuel pump replace both of them this is a common fault the rubber o rings on the pipes harden and leak make sure you prime the diesel filter after replacing these pipes the engine can be difficult to start on this model once air is allowed in the system

WARNING! Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when you are near the battery or engine. A battery is filled with explosive gasses that can ignite when extreme heat or a spark is present. A battery could have residual acid on the outside casing so use caution when handling a battery and the surrounding area. Use baking soda to neutralize any suspected acid residue before work begins.
You can check the car battery using a multimeter or voltmeter an electronic one is preferred , connect the black wire to the negative side (-) and the red to positive , WARNING :DO NOT CROSS THE RED AND BLACK WIRES OR SHORT CIRCUIT THE LEADS OF THE BATTERY OR MULTIMETER YOU CAN GET SERIOUSLY HURT!!!!! you should also get a spare watering can and fill it with water , (dont reuse for other purposes for safety) and remove those little tabs (usually around 4 or more) and fill it up very little in each tab/cap make sure you DONT fill it to the top. The good condition of a battery is 12.5 and 12.8 volts on the multmeter and when the car is started it
(not driven just started) should around 14V which shows that your alternater (acts as battery charger when driving) is working properly.

Depends on the part to be replaced. The pump is pretty straightforward with the correct tools and costs about $60 to $100 if you do it yourself (I own an Intrepid, similar to the LHS and I work on it a lot) . If it's a metal hose, this is going to be about $30 to $50 or more and will need a flare nut wrench, along with other hand tools. If this is attached to the steering rack, you may have to move other parts out of the way. This is not a hard job either, but could be time consuming and be careful not to cross thread the fittings.
