My C240 wouldn't start this morning, was turning over ok but just wouldn't fire, this is the first time it has done this since I've owned the car, anyone any ideas or carry out any checks, I drove the car yesterday and it was fine

Have you checked out if you have a spark at the plugs? Is the distributor wet?

Hey Man ,

I had a similar problem a few months back

It turned out there wasn't enought pressure in the fuel pump

although mine did start eventually.

stealership replaced fuel pump and filter been running fine after that.

If it was running OK yesterday, sounds like condensation, due to damp weather.

Spray with WD40 over plugs, leads and distributor should do the trick mate.;)
