    Hi everyone. New here as you can see and new to the Mercedes ownership. I have recently bough a 300te 24v and I'm having some issues.

    The car struggles to start when hot, and will not idle properly when hot either.
    I have found 2 vacuum leaks so far a suspect there may be another. Also the thermostat is broken and need replacing.

    What else can I look for? Not knowing these cars inside out.

    Thanks,

    probably best to take it to local indie to get a read out on diagnostics (STAR) and go from there.

    Hello and welcome by the way.
