i would say that you have a bad fuel pump or if you have a carb on it the float inside the carb is stuck check these and i'm sure you will find it's one of these.

It took Mercon Dextron III.

Of course, MD IV, V or Mutli-Vehicle would be better (the new multi-vehicle formula is what is being widely recommended by all nowadays).

If Engine Starts with accelerator pedal depressed , check idle speed control valve (if equipped) and wiring connection. Did you check for vacuum leaks. Do you know if your ignition timing is correct? How did you check your fuel pump? I take it no codes have been set, so if not there are several things to check for when the engine stalls #1 is to check cold start injector and cold start injector time switch. If engine stalls sometimes- check airflow meter and connectors You can tap the connector or relay or wiggle and notice if there is a slight change in the engine idle.

1988 Mercedes Benz 300E 3.0L Gasoline F.I. ''Sputtering at Idle


ok..you must have more than one car???? you don't drive the 300 atall im guessing. #1 start car drive up the road and \back to your house. #2 let it idle till problem starts. #3 once it does start with the problem keep it alive with the gas pedal. #4 once your have it safely from dying in higher rpms "rev it" like a kid would, you know like if you were gonna race some one lol. be careful not to over rev or damage engine. you should do this for five minutes no longer than that. #5 let it idle for another 5 minutes. #6 repeat every day until problem with idling decipates. it took mine 3 300e like 3 days of this. if your not going to drive the car once you get the problem out of the way. turn the car on everyday and let it idle for 5 minutes atleast and take it for a short drive once a week. they get lonelly you know lol. later on you can just turn the car on every 2 -3 days and let it idle but still take it on a short drive atleast once a week

1987 mercedes 300CE does not start very well after thse engine is shut of for .5 of an hour or more-however st arts fine when it is cold.


well if tune up and normal maintenance is current I would guess its the cold start valve. When the valve starts to fail or fails it can allow the extra fuel used at cold idle to "flood" the system when its not needed when warm.

1991 mercedes e300 starts then smokes then shuts off


Sounds like too much restriction in the system if nothing else has changed but I would suggest a tune up with a minimum cap, rotor, coil and plugs. Also the OVP relay on the passenger side firewall is a known starting issue.
