    Car into ditch now won't start - possible fuel filter blockage?

    Hi Guys,

    My Gf had a little accident with some ice a few weeks back and ended up in a ditch withe the car at a 45 degree angle.

    After the car was recovered, it started for a while but now it will turn but not fire.

    I have been told it might be a blocked fuel filter as the crap from the bottom of the tank might have blocked it.

    Can someone please tell me the location of the fuel filter on a Merc A class..... its a 1998 model not a new one lol

    Thanks
    Silver Lightning Linea Rossa coupe

    Sounds more like the fuel cut of valve (If it has one)
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
