A while back I posted a topic about the cold start problems that I am having. The car has problem starting when it is cold. I have to hit the gas pedal 10-13 time while starting the car, to get the engine running.
i have a 190E 1988 2.3
I recevied many replies, and I thank y'all for that. Right now I am short of time, so I took the car to 2 different mechanics.
mechnic 1 said it is the ECU, without even researching too much into the problem.
mechanic 2 said he will charge me $150 or more just to figure out the problem. I think mechanic 2 is just trying to rip me off. And I cant seriously afford to pay $150-200 to just figure out the problem at this time. I am willing to pay to get the problem fixed (around $350).
Anyone know of a good, reliable mechanic in san jose, CA who can fix the problem? I need someone who will not rip me off. Right now I am a little bit short on money.
Is it OK if drive the car, like it is right now. Or will that create more problems for me?
Thanks for all the help.
