Question about Mercedes-Benz SLK
The fuel filter may be clogged. If this is carberated, you could have sticky floats and/or carb is gummed up and needs to be removed, dismantled and the parts soaked in parts cleaner for an hour.
Do check the spark, You can remove the plug, put back on coil wire, place the electrode of the plug about 1/8" away from the cylinder head bolt or other metal surface, turn the engine over and observe for a good strong spark. If it is weak, change the plug. If you have an intermittent spark, then the coil may need to be changed. You can test it with a volt meter.
