FUEL PUMP

1990 Mercedes Benz 300sl • 2WD Automatic • 52,000 miles

I have a Mercedes 300sl-24valve, it starts fine when cold until it gets hot and then the engine starts missing and will then cut out and will not restart. If I leave it for a couple hours to cool down it will start straight away until it gets hot again and then the same problem. A mechanic says it could be the fuel pump as it has a slight leak he says. What do you think?

Aloha, your mechanic is probably right and the leak has to addressed. Have you replaced the fuel filter? It actually sound like a classic ff problem. Regards.
