I just bought a 1978 450SEL w/4.5. I had it checked out before I bought it, all AOK. Excellant condition, well maintained. After I bought it I took it in to a tech for hard starting when warm. After turning off and letting it sit for 20 min, it would act as though it was flooded. After it cleared ran fine. They said the fuel accumulator wasn't holding preasure. Replaced it. Now it stalls intermittantly when coming to a rolling stop, also has poor excelleration off the line. Upper RPM's fine. This has bout the same symptoms as 190E Stalling problem, very intermittant. Suggestions?
