Question Used or remanufactured?

For used try www.pgauto.com for remanufactured try www.easternimports.com.
Why are you replacing the fuel distributor and/or what symptoms do you have?
Good luck!

Wink Do a search!

I do not think your fuel distributor is the problem. I'd seen this problem discussed here before.
Good luck!

Sounds like fuel injectorss leaking down, I have seen check valves in fuel pump, accumulator, cause these symptoms also. First connect fuel pressure gauges to the vehicle, then run car to 80c . After vehicle is warm watch fuel pressure and see is it drops .If it does how much and over how long? Make sure proper diagnosis before replacing distributor. The fuel distributor common problems are improper flow, leaking from plunger seal , when replacing it has to be set up properly not just put on. Ask him about these things before spending$$$. I have one but I am not parting out car until january.

well I haven't fixed it yet....I'll check all that because now little thigs are starting to go wrong with the car..the rear struts are squeeking around corners, and if they are bad ...might as well lower it. and today my sunroof stopped...and ofcourse it's still open. but I think in my manual it shows how to manualy shut it.....I appreciate all the info guys.......and for who is looking I have a set of 98 CLK pollished rims for sale they are in great shape and I know they fit my 124 but not sure what others...400 + shipping (what I paid for them) Thanks again!!!

OK haven't replaced it yet. but the problem seems not to happen so often (you know ofcourse when you have someone new riding that likes the car ....and then rarararara.. no start.) but I found a used one at Potomac for under 200. I don't have the tools to do a pressure check. and by the looks at some of the replys, i don't have the tools to change it my self ....for all the tuning afterwards.

if i do do it my self what are the steps I should follow, and what do I need to make sure and do when it's on?

I have a friend that will help, and can get the tools. I'm pretty mechanicly inclined, but with the hondas, and I all of them up for my baby 300E
