I have a 1985 380SL with 87K miles that suddenly dies for no apparent reason while just driving along. It will restart after 1-3 tries, then the same problem repeats in about 2 days again. Car will idle in driveway for 2 hours with no problem. Car runs perfect otherwise.

Any suggestions for what may be causing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

The fuel pump relay is at fault most likely!! We sell them in the partsshop!
It is a known fault that has caused many complaints such as this one. If you want you can use the search function to see for yourself in the archives.
