I have been having troubles with my 200 for the past 3 days. It started
on thursday when we had heavy rains all day and night, and I did a lot of
driving that day too. It was cold also, perhaps 40 degrees F. On the day it
was raining the car started very hard, and idled roughly, nearly stalling, I
would have to give it gas to keep it from stalling. When i wqould start
driving it would hesitate on accleration. WHen warm it would run fine
though. On friday i could not get the car to start at all. It would crank
fine, so no problem with the battery, but it would not catch. Today it
started hard again, I had to crank for 5 seconds or more. It is idling
terribly now, it will stall even if i give it gas. I drove it for a bit and
it got better when warm, but then i just tried to start it 20 minutes ago,
and the idle was worse than ever, and i didnt dare try to drive it for fear
of stalling and not being able to start it agin.
ANy thoughts? BTDT's? BTW before this the car would start right away, and
would occasionally idle roughly, but never for more than 30 seconds or a
