    Your engine uses mechanical Bosch fuel injection similar to that used on Volvo, Peugeot, and VW. It was a great system but was easily damaged by water in the fuel or dirty fuel. Few younger guys know this fuel system well any more. Find a trustworthy independent Mercedes repair shop they will be familiar with this car. Check the basics first. These were a great car,many still on the road with huge mileage. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
