Question about 1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

1992 190E 2.6 MBZ that has been sitting for about 3 years. It started about a year ago, when we moved it from the street down the driveway. Now we want to get rid of it and have found a possible buyer. The battery was replaced, but it won't start. It turns over but that is it. Non of the fluids have been drained. We were just hoping to get it running long enough to let the buyer know that it runs. During it's use, it was well maintained by an authorized Mercedes mechanic. I just decided that I wanted a new car instead of putting more money into this one for the air pump. What do you suggest for getting it started. Thanks so much

Drain the old fuel from tank, put some LUCAS FUEL TREATMENT with fresh fuel. Try pouring some fuel in intake to see if it fires up.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas / fuel dryer to remove moisture in your fuel tank.

Check the coil + wires for water / moisture drip / wetness.

The car battery is losing it's charge when vehicle is not running


You have what is called a parasitic draw on the electrical system , battery . Could be a control module not powering down when it's should . a electrical componet is staying on . , light in glove box , something you can't see . Bad diode in the alternator could cause this . But this just gussing , testing is the way to a fix . Watch thesed videos on testing for a draw on the system . Improved Methods to Find Parasitic Draw Battery Drains Overnight

1998 buick lesabre refuses to start or turnover until it sits awhile


Sounds like the starter to me(I assumed you meant won't crank when hot).I have replaced only 1 starter(on my neighbor's Taurus)in the 15 years after quitting the GM dealer tech job 15 years ago.I probably could make a career just changing GM starters and alternators.(I only have Mopars in my driveway!)

Have the fuel; pump checked for pressure bleed down after sitting, it should hold pressure within 5 PSI of rated running pressure after shutting sown the engine for extended periods.

89 Ford F150 shuts off when put in gear.


After sitting 2 years, there must have been some fuel in tank that has probably gone real bad (like shellac) and contaminated the fuel system, plugged up filter etc. Usually rust will form in tank, mixed with stale fuel, it will turn just like mud.
