    Hi everyone, I have the following intermittent problem, possibly link to a cold start issue. On ignition. I don't always get the automatic idle surge up from ca. 800 to about 1100, to warm the engine. Later W124s do not have specific cold start valves, so start injection is an EMS controlled...

    Hola Señors and Señorita's, My ML320 CDI engine had a leaking injector for quite some time... I decided to ignorantly chug around for a while (a long while) until recently, as I thought it was getting worse. Reason I thought this was because the engine was struggling to start in a morning...

    W124 E300 cold start issue

    I have now got my E300. Having had it checked over there are no issues mechanically. There does seem to be a reluctance to start from cold. It takes longer for the engine to fire depending on the temperature, but only from 1st start. Is there a cold start injector or temp sensor that could cause...
