Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Mercedes Benz 500sl V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic


When I start my vehicle it will drive just fine for about 15 minutes, than it will stall and you can't start it again for about one hour. After getting it started the second time, my vehicle will drive perfectly. Sometimes also when I turn my vehicle off after driving it for 10 or 15 minutes, I will have to wait one hour before starting it again. Can you please help me with this situation.

Thank you

Do you
have the same problem?

I had the same problem, I have a 560 SEL


I have replaced:
1. The fuel filter; and,
2. The two fuel pumps; and,
3. The ignition control module; and,
4. spark plugs; and,
5. spark plugs wires; and,
6. cap and rotor; and,
7. engine computer; and,
8. fuel pressure regulator; and,
9. And all vacuum lines;
this was the only car in 40 years, that kicked my A$$,
I decided to remove the engine and put a Diesel in it, because it is such an awesome machine, as I began to remove the head, I found four cylinders cracked, I believe the car was going in to limp mode, it was using coolant, but very little, I did not think it was a problem,
but my advice to you is, have the cooling system checked out.

Was this
