My 16 year old daughter has complained the '87 300E cuts out intermittently on her. I drive the car and it runs fine. After towing her off the road I noticed that it would run for about three minutes and then shut off. I changed the fuel filter and let it itdle for about a half hour. It seemed fine. I then drove it for about 20 minutes and I hailed my success at diagnosis! While going to the "father-daughter" dance last night, I got about 2 minutes from the house and while turning a corner and accelerating, the car simply stopped. It would not re-start for several minutes. After re-starting, I drove it back home and it again seemed fine. My daughter just started driving and this car only conks out with her either driving or in the car. You don't think it's a "negative aura" thing do you?
