Hello there, I'm a new member asking a question on behalf on my dad, who's got a 1987 'D' w124 300 TE. Today the car would start as normal, but only run for a few seconds before cutting out - enough to get it half the way down the road, where it now resides. The rev counter would stick and perform rather strangely, but there didn't seem to show any other odd symptoms. The car has idled more lumpy lately apparently but not cut out previously, but now it just dies after about 10 seconds. If anyone's got any ideas of what to check / do / look for we'd be incredibly grateful as the thing's stuck down the road- apparently the ABS light hasn't been on so does that rule out OVP stuff? (I once had a w126 that had OVP issues). Thanks in advance for any assistance!
