    Hi All,

    We've got a C220 CDi estate (2004), and are having an intermittent problem.

    Every few (5?) starts, the engines starts, and then cuts out after a couple of seconds. It then takes about 3 goes to get it started again.

    I was wondering if anyone's had the same problem, or could give any clues as to what it might be?

    Thanks for any help

    Look for an air leak into the fuel lines.
