Customer Question

C220 cdi auto diesel Engine will not start when hot ( could be on a tilt ) the fuel gauge fails to indicate but engine fails to turn. After some time between 3 and 10 minutes the starts perfectly normal. I have had a new starter motor fitted and a new starter solenoid/relay and also replaced the batteries in the key. The main battery has been checked and is OK. I am reluctant to pay out any more cash until I am sure that I have the right answer.

I found this on U tube but it is American I think
