MERCEDES BENZ 280SEL FUEL PUMP PROBLEM

1985 Mercedes Benz 280sel • 255,000 miles

When my Benz is cold it starts well and runs high and rich. When it gets hot the Benz will start to jerk as if it starves from petrol. I have already replaced the petrol electric fuel pump, cleaned the tank, and yet the problem is still there. Also my Benz has stood for some time without me starting or riding the car. What can be causing the jerking and then cutting out only to start later after a while?

What about the basics like plugs, wires and coil? How long since they were serviced?
