ok, im guessing your all starting to get sick of hearing me banging on about this, but it would seem that i may have been blaming the wrong area of the car for the cause of the fault. i had some time to sare today (between job searches!) and went poking around under the bonnet. when car is running, every now and again you can see air bubbles travelling along in the fuel. if iraise the engine sped to about 800rpm, theyre much bigger an clearer. as the revs rise, obviously theyre harder to see but at approx 1500rpm ive noticed a slight misfire, which i assume is due to the air in the sytem. i aso think that the air bubble i keep seeing when its not running is air trapped inside the filter. after a short motorway run and a 1mile thrash during it, i parked for a while, drove gently for a bit, switched off again, went to re start, nothing. pipe was full of air. anyone any ideas where its coming from? tank almost full so not wanting to take tank strainer out just yet! im wondering about hoses or non return valves etc. or things mercshave that my previous fleet havent had! neve had any problems with previous mercs!
