Question about 1993 Mercedes-Benz 190
I can drive my 1992 190e for a about 15 minitues and then it sounds like it has some fuel starvation and stalls. I sometimes have to leave it for about 1/2 hour and it starts right up. But if I try and restart it sometime it dose but sounds rough and then gose for a bit longer. Sometimes it will not start and when left will start right up later. It has done this through out the summer first thought it was water /condensation in the tank but kept the tank full and added water remover. Problem still gose on. Any ideas.
Sounds like the vent on your gas cap is blocked.
The next time it dies, try opening the gas cap and listen for a sound like air escaping. If you hear this, it should start right back up again.
If I'm right, you just need to replace the fuel cap ($5 at any gas station or auto parts store) and you'll be good as new.
