The subject line describes it all... it cranks but takes forever to
start, it might idle for a while but it stalls easily, and putting
the tranny in "D" will kill the engine unless I have it revving well
above idle. Car is in generally good shape, but I'm driving it hardly
at all 'cause I bought another M-B brand that gets about double the
mileage, making it a superb commuter and go-around-town car (and
actually isn't bad for the occasional road trip).
Hints, suggestions, what to suggest to the repair shop ... and yeah,
how about a recommendation for a decent M-B shop in the southern part
of Seattle, if any of you know of one? Seems like the best M-B shops
are in the north end of the city or out in the east-side 'burbs.
