1986 mercedes benz 230e runs rough and stalls

I have a 1986 mercedes 230e that has an apparent fuel problem. the problem is that the car will start and run for a few minutes, but then just dies. Is also not running the best- misfires and runs irregularly. Does the same thing whether it is sitting there idling or driving along. I have already replaced the fuel pump, but im not entirly sure it is a fuel related problem, im only guessing. Engine will start again straight away after it has died

I have a 1986 230e mercedes. the previous owner has damaged the aircondition electrical system and tried a partial rewiring but is useless. so i need a detailed wiring diagram for the aircondition system....

To get a detailed electrical diagram, you won't find it free on the website.

One would have to go to a place called to find it, but will have to pay for the information.

Black smoke is burning oil, blue is unburnt fuel. If you are burning oil sound like valve seals in the head are failing.
