    560SL 1987. Stalls at stop lights and will not restart for some time unless the fuel cap is removed, then it starts. The mercedes mechanic have checked the fuel pump and it is ok. Emmissions control stuff?

One of the more common problems with the 2.5L & 2.2L engines that suffered the symptoms your describing, such as, starts & runs good, then at any given time would just quit, not start, but after sitting a while, or by the time the mechanic gets to it, it starts right up, or you sit on the side of the road for 20 min. or half hour then away it goes for a while longer, then quits again down the road. There is a pick-up plate under the distributor cap & rotor, with the wiring plug coming from it. 90% of the time, it's defective, and cuts out especially, but not limited to, more often when weather is hot.

SOURCE: My mercedes Benz C 220 stalls when I come to a stop or in park .

Is the AC on? The compressor can take alot of power and make it lope. Engine mounts can make it shake. coils, cap, rotor and wires for tune up at a minimum. EZL if you can find one cheap. MAF also can cause issue. If it is a 1991-1995 check the engine wiring harness as they get brittle and degrade.

Check for vacuum leaks. Also try cleaning the ISV.


If that doesnt work go to vwvortex.com and post your issue there

most likely dirty switches or bad fuses. Try rotating fuses and then try moving them again. Corrosion on the fuses cause "gremlins" in the system. If not find a junkyard and pull out a set of used switches or try autohausaz.com for new replacements.

It cranks, but it does not run


Have you check the plugs, cables, cap/rotor ?

One thing you can try since it starts good in warm weather, is to ,on a cold morning, take a hair dryer and warm up the suspect part to warm weather condition. Then try and start the car. If it start ok you have probably found the weak part.
