    230E on 3 cylinders

    After checking oil, fuel (decent stuff) etc, set off in my 1987 230E which had occasionally been misfiring under load, but now seemed good. after a good run of 200 miles with no problems, the missing under load returned occasionally, but otherwise 90+ cruising in a fully loaded car was fine with...

However, I am now a proud owner (with a big cheesy grin on my face) of a 2002...
