my 91 560SEL is hard to start when it has been sitting for some time. However, if it has been sitting only for about 30 min to an hour, it cracks right up without any problems.

any suggestions?

thx

You may have a slight leakdown at the EHA governor or somewhere. I'd have the fuel system checked.

Benzmac thanks...
it appears that it starts okay in the morning when cold. Is the overvoltage relay also a suspect in a 91 560SEL in this case?

Confused. Top post say difficult to start after long times, bottom post says it start pretty good in the morning?

Have you checked the battert under "load" conditions? How old is the battery anyway?

what i meant by long periods of time is that the engine is warm, as opposed to starting it in the morning when the engine is cold.
