hot start problem
Were from Scotland and my wife has the same problem with her 1991 230e. Weve tried changing the fuel valve regulator, cleaning the petrol with additive with no luck.
I put an earlier post in regarding this problem and was advised to check the Overvolt Protection Relay which is behind the battery.
I couldn't distinguish what was what in there so left welll alone. I believe the ovp is about £70 so it would be an expensive experiment if this wasn't the cause.
Please let me know if you get yours fixed.
