MERCEDES BENZ 380SL ENGINE PROBLEM

1983 Mercedes Benz 380sl • 30,000 miles

Car starts cold with no problem, If you drive 5 miles and cut it off for 20 min. Engine turns over many times to start then lopes for 10 seconds and catches up and runs. What causes hard start when warm. Jim

Jim,
It could be several things. If the check engine light is on, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free. Also, a weak fuel pump could cause it as well as vacuum leaks.
