I have a similiar problem with my car, too. However, when I start the car warm, and engine starts right away, but when the rpm would dropped down below 500rpm, and went back to normal idle. By any chances if the engine stalls, the car won't start no matter how you try, and would have to let it sit for 30 min or so, and the car will run again just fine. So far, my local MB has clean up the distribution caps(which I replaced in 1998). But the problem happens once in a while still....any thoughts??

Note: It only happens if the car is warm...
