A friend of mine owns a 1988 300SL and it's refusing to fire up.
I have read some place before that the fuel pump relay could be the cause? Anyone else had a similar issue or could help diagnose what it may be?
Thank you very much
I'm after a R107 300 SL preferably in dark blue or silver.
Posting here because I'd like an enthusiast-owned car that's been looked after and had money spent on it.
Budget is up to £15k.
I'm not a messer, dreamer or tyre-kicker and have immediate funds available for the right car...

I went to the Hemmels open day last night in Cardiff as they reveal their workshop.
They had five W113's all at different stages of their restorations and of course their immaculate workshop!
I wrote on my Mercedes Blog more detail with lots of photos :rock:
If you are near the Cardiff...

I've been having on and off recently in the hot weather misfiring that won't go away.
When its cold, say in the late evening the car runs as it should. During the day when its much warmer the car once its up to temp is misfiring and stalling like crazy.

I'm looking for a R107 300SL or 500SL. If a 500, I'd prefer a facelift.
I don't mind a car which need restoring/tidying up. Good history ect is a bonus.
My budget is up to £18,000, price depending on if the car does/doesn't need work.
Just bought an 1988 sl300 r107 as a project with my dad, hopefully some of you guys can help us out a long the way, I'm fully qualified mechanic with 10 years experience not a lot compared to some people but I'll help out on other posts where I can.
My R129 300SL has recently started beeping from the rear of the cockpit on starting. It lasts for about 10 seconds and then goes off. There are no dash alarms showing.
Any ideas what the car is trying to tell me?
After owning for a year and barely being used I have decided to sell my 1993 300SL. Wasted too much time and money on Autotrader with downright rude people and ridiculous offers. Car is clean and rust free, everything works and I have the original hardtop so I refuse to give the old girl away...
R107 300sl going up to 95 degrees after idling for 25 mins, maybe normal!
However, coolant is bubbling out over the extension tank and causing the coolant to obviously leak & go down (unless there's another leak!). Am hoping just to replace the tank and cap as where the brass meets the plastic...
