Hi, I have an 88 300CE. it was starting fine the day before until this
morning all the sudden it can not start. When I turn the key, the engine
turns fine and strong but just can't start. I have checked the battery and
it is fine. I have put in 1 gallon of gas just in case there is no gasoline
in the tank. Since the engine turns strongly I believe the starter is fine
too. Now I am suspecting the fuel filter and fuel pump might be the causes.
But i doubt they can cause unable to start all of the sudden. Would ppl in
this forum tell me what could be the most likely cause of this strange
problem? Thank you very much.
Update: I have taken apart the distributor and found carbon deposit. I
tried to sand off the deposit and put back the disbributor but it didn't help.
I ended up taken the car to pepboys and after $382 my car is running fine
now/. The problem: bad distributor and the rotating head. I quess they just
worn out and not the deposit.
