    Hi I doubt anyone can give me an answer , but on a few occasions my e320 diesel has started in the morning then just stopped , I leave it for a while then it will start , I have fuel in the tank 5 gallons , it just does not give you confidence , ive had fuel filter changed so I don't think it could be blocked filter , , I do try locking and unlocking the car when sitting in it , with the key fob , wondering if this might have anything to do with it , its done this only twice in 8 mnths , any possible clues before I have the car put on a code reader ??

    engine running then just stops and wont start until left for a while ? everything else works ok , , I just gt in and its been fine all day apart frm this morning and about a yr ago when did same thing ? it just makes me nervous about driving it in case it ever refuses to start and leaves me stranded , ive filled tank up today , one thing I noticed might be totally unrelated , is that when I undid fuel cap , it made a noise like a whoosh ie as if it was a vacuum and I was releasing pressure ?
