1989 230E stalling. fuel distributor?

My 1989,230E(W124,4 cyl,8 valve) stalls every 2-3 days and starts as usual after resting for 1 hour. When it stalled last time I checked the fuel lines on top of fuel distributor. No fuel comes out of the lines. The fuel comes out after 1 hour and then the car starts as usual.The power connection to the fuel distributor is showing 0.5 volts with ignition on, 1 volts during cranking and 0 volts when engine is running.
Why there is no fuel coming out when the car is hot?
What else effects the fuel distibutor's decisions?
How can I diagnose what is wrong with the fuel distributor?

I am not familiar with your car but,

Didi you do a search on the fuel pump relay or OVP?

How can an OVP cause a no start condition?
Shouldn't the car run even without the OVP?
I will replace the fuel relay but don't think that is the problem.

Have you checked your fuel pump after the stall.

Check the DIY section under evaluating electronic engine controls.

I mentioned the OVP because of the stalling. It could also be a defective fuel pump. Did you tap the fuel pump as someone suggested recently on a different post?
Good luck!

found the problem part

My car stalled again. Tapping on the fuel pump didn't help. Than I tapped on the fuel pressure regulator and the car started right up. I did this 3-4 times when the car stalled. I am thinking that the fuel pressure regulator was possibly causing a too high or too low pressure at the fuel line that was making the car stall.
If anyone knows a way to fix the fuel pressure regulator please help me out.
