Dan, What was the verdict? Was it a one day sale? If not, maybe you
shoulda shimmed the alda and added 2-3 PSI boost. Rolferize it for her.

Wife has mentioned that her SL500 had died on her several times of
late. Yesterday for the first time while stopped at a light. Started
right back up. Today it did it twice, both times starting right back up.
As I'm thinking about putting it on the DAS/Xentry tonight and
checking codes, it occurs to me that this is a classic crankshaft
position sensor failure coming on.
Go to Amazon for the Bosch part - none to be found through Prime,
meaning everyone else is shipping to arrive next week. Check the
FLAPS, no one has one. Call NAPA - nothing in the state.
It's 4:30, and I know my dealer parts guy is already gone for the day,
but I call anyway.
Cutoff for VOR orders is 4:45. Got one in Jacksonville and it will be
here at 7:00 am tomorrow. About $80 my cost, but the Bosch equivalent
is $50 and overnight or express shipping would have made it that much
or maybe more.
Here's the convert part:
Gonna give the wife the 350SDL to drive tomorrow. She's never driven
it, or a diesel, since my 1979 300TD. I told her once she got out of
the neighborhood she should drive it like she stole it.
This will be interesting.
