1990 Mercedes 560 DEL tries, but won't start

Asked by Sep 03, 2017 at 07:38 PM about the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560-Class 4 Dr 560SEL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1990 Mercedes 560 SEL sat
up for almost a year due to an
electrical problem. Fixed the
electrical problem, put a new
battery some Recur in and fresh
gas. Though the car was on
empty, there is still the smell of
funky gas. The engine turns over
but won't crank. The fuel pump
on the left is definitely running
and the car will crank when
starting fluid is sprayed into the
intake, but does as soon as it
burns it up. Guess I need to
replace the fuel filter next? Any
other suggestions?
