1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E Q&A

1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E Question: Hard starting, especiallly when cold

When it finally starts,engine runs great. Get over 25 mpg. Was told by repair shop that part in fuel delivery systyem was leaking. Part to cost $1,400.00 to replace. Deceided not to replace. Bad idea? -
Answer 1
I have a '91 190e 2.3, had the same problem, turned it was the 10amp fuse in the fuel pump relay, it's behind the battery. Remove the cover and there are 2 modules and 3 relays. Mine was a silver relay in the middle with a hinged transparent plastic top. Opened the top, popped the fuse and problem solved. So much trouble and a 50 cent fix. -
Answer 2
the silver relay is not the fuel pump relay but the voltage overload relay,i would bet $1400 dollars its simply the cold start injector.go to a wrecker and take the centre injector with the electric plug and replace yours.it will start perfect i almost gaurantee it. -
