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?

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
