1997 Mercedes Benz 230te Repair Question
Mercedes Benz 230te Gas Problem
It could be that the fuel in the fuel system turned to a varnish like substance, happens within a few months of sitting, and has clogged the injectors. If you can get it to run at all use some BG44K poured right into the vacuum tube that runs to the vacuum power brake booster. It will make a lot of smoke for 5 minutes but will help to clena out injectors. If there is a fuel filter, I don't think there is, on your model that you can service, replace it before doing this.
BG44k can be found at car dealership parts counters and it costs $20 a bottle but it is well worth it.
