Iíve been having a problem starting my í94 C280. Hereís whatís happening: When the car sits overnight it will start on the 1st try without any problems. After sitting for a while the next restart results in the engine starting briefly, then dying. The only way I can get the engine to continue running is by flooring the gas pedal. When I do this I can hear the Rpmís rise and the engine will continue to run. Iíve checked the over voltage relay and Iíve got the updated one. Any ideas on what to replace / check next? I checked the archives and although the OVR is mentioned there is not too much on this type of warm start problem.
