89 300 e mercedes cranks over but wont start


Have you checked that it is getting fuel????
Slightly undo one or two of the injector lines on the fuel distributor and have someone turn on the ignition while you slightly depress the disc from the airflow-meter box. If there is no fuel coming up than you have a fuel problem. That can be electrical, faulty fuelpump, the little control box that is bolted to the fuel distributor called electro-hydralic-actuator or even the fuel distributor itself.
Simply a process of elimination.
Fuel
Spark
etc.
Hope this helps

Spin your fuses, they used aluminum fuses and the corrode in the copper contacts.

You can replace the fuses with new copper ended ones.

Cold start


Duty cycle needs adjusted, screw in middle of air cleaner assembly leads to it.

Also the fuel distributor may not be allowing fuel in at cold start like it should but until duty is set i wouldnt mess with it.

To set duty cycle its kind of drawn out to put here.

I suggest hopp on over to benzworld.org as they have some great guides and how to's.

engine wiring harness upper and lower could be degraded, coil could be bad, throttle positioner, fuel distributor could be bad and depending if its a half year car and you have an OVP that could be bad. Also after a full tune up have someone adjust the duty cycle.

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
