560 sel quit running and won't start

ok here we go one thing after another. was driving at lunch didn't make a mile and car felt like it was chocking and stoped and now won't start. fuel pump is running getting current to the icv if that matters. is this a fuel pump relay problem?

If the pump is running and fuel is flowing I doubt it is fuel related.

If it were me I would check the crankshaft position sensor...there seem to be quite a few of them going bad lately. I think it is only about $50 and causes the symptoms you describe.

For future reference....

1) Where is this sensor located?
2) I don't see "crankshaft sensor" on Fastlane, is it a dealer part?
3) How does this sensor look like?

Luckily my car is running fine *knock on wood*, but if I were to have a problem like this, I'd know where to look.

L5 will do it.

Test the on-off ratio usinf pins 2 and 3 of the X-11 socket.

Do an advanced search in the tech forum for duty+cycle. Read the posts and there will be some pics. Tip, 300SE/L's use the same injection system as your car with 2 fewer cylinders.

Check this post,

300SE W126 Will not start

and read post #11.

This is a good post:

Duty Cycle reading and questions......

as is this one:

Sears Multimeter #82139 for Duty Cycle Check

read the posts, study the situation and diagnose it, check the basics.
