Hard Starting 380 SL warm engine

I have a hard starting problem with my 1982 380 SL. After driving any distance with engine at opperating tempture and then shutting engine off for 15 to 30 minutes, the engine is very dificult to start. Run's well after it does start. Pump check valve has been replaced and pressure regulator o-rings replaced.

Thanks and best regards, Larry G

You should have the fuel system accumulator checked and replaced if needed. I have seen many of these leak down.
