Re: 98 ML320....
For some odd reason, I stalled the other day - as I slowed down, approaching
a red light, AC, Radio, all on, etc....
Put ML in park, started right up.. light turned green, drove with windows
open, nothing going,.. not even the radio....all was fine for the remainder
of the 30 minute trip...
Following day, another hot day in NJ, drove about 3 miles, parked ML.. hung
around Relay for an hour, went to ML - would not start - AT ALL..tried a
good 10 times, crank, crank, crank, nothing.. battery is good and strong, no
Hours later that evening, started right up and it's now in my driveway,
untouched, for almost a week - I don't want to drive it.. (not til Monday,
half hour trip to mechanic...)
Now I do have a suspicion that since the MAF has been replaced, maybe the
crankshaft sensor is next.. there are times, cold, it takes 2 times to
start...so I feel that might be a given...
But in googling, I found a thread, same issues, stalling, where Tiger
mentioned leaky fuel injector, when hot...
Seems eerily similar...
Not only that, but I noticed that some of the components, near the washer
reservoir, are 'wet'... never saw that before... the reservoir has been
replaced (of course, we all know this issue) and is not leaking...
Could this be a leaky injector??? Would it be spraying around? Also, if so,
is this hard, expensive, etc???
Thanks for any insight before I go in on Monday!
