Hi all, wonder if anyone can help.
My 88 230TE W124 has suddenly become very difficult to start when cold.
It is taking around 10 attempts to get it started but once started and run
for 30 seconds it then performs fautlessly. It starts 1st time when warm and
I havn't noticed any deterioration in performance.
All service items have been replaced, plugs, air filter, distributer cap
etc, with no improvement.
The fault appeared suddenly, it did not deteriorate over time to get like
Has anyone else come across this problem and could point me at the solution.
If its a clue ( it may not be related) the idle speed seems to have dropped
150 or so RPM from where it used to be.
