I have a MB 190e 2.6 (auto).

The vehicle does not want to start very easily in the morning or after the car has sat for a day or longer. I turn on the ignition and wait (to let the fuel pump pressurize).... but it just seems to really have trouble getting going.

Is there a "cold temp." sensor or??

Any ideas?

Also.... where can one go to find a repair manual for an 89? Haynes only has up to 88 that I have found/seen.

Thanks to all who take time to post

Check your Overvoltage protection relay. Either the fuse on top or the relay itself can drop power to the KE-Jet system.

The fuel system works well without electric controls when warm but lacks the ability to do its largest compensation: starting enrichment and its second largest compensation: cold enrichment.
