Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Mercedes Benz 300td 6 cyl 257000 miles
weird problem on my Benz please help;
with the hot weather lately I notice the temp. Gauge goes between mid to 3/4 on gauge especially with AC running; after driving in this condition that means the motor is getting hot hot and once it shuts down I can't get it to restart. It cranks but wont' run. Let it cools down for couple hours then it starts fine. By no mean the motor is overheat however.
During winter time there is no problem since I do not turn the AC on and the temp. Gauge only goes halfway and stays there. Even with gauge goes to 3/4 of reading that is still not overheated but the car won't start once shut down.
Please help the expert! Thank you.
