Can this sensor be affected by heat?
My engine on my '87 190E 2.3 suddenly cuts out(no warning) after it gets hot. It passes 100 ,fan comes on and cools back to about 80, then it dies. Apperently I then get no spark, and car doesn't start until it cools (10-20 min).It then runs fine until it gets hot again. Idle seems ok.Car starts better when cold out. Cranks a few seconds before starting when warm out.
I have changed the coil, and installed newer OVP, but problem persists.
Please help!
