The car is w211 E320 cdi 2003,

Here goes, About a 2 months ago I had some starting issues (turning the car over till the battery near goes flat before it starts) which i put down to dirty fuel filter which I changed and this fixed the starting problem for about a month and then the problem started to arise again, so then started to think it was bad fuel so changed where i bought from and then the problem only appeared when the fuel was low, so yesterday changed the filter again and still no change infact its worse that ever.

Any help would be great

Thanks

BOBBY

Have you noticed any fuel leaking..sometimes the pipes to the pump..at the front of the engine.. drip leak and the fuel runs down behind the pulleys and is hard to see, this means that you have to crank the fuel up to the pump again before the car will start..
