    Sl55 sluggish response

    Slow to warm start and sluggish from cold.

    My W202 C230k starts fine from cold but the idle is slightly jumpy and the car feels a bit hesitant until warm. When I do a warm start it can take a few seconds to start up, but it never fails to start. Could this be the MAF? Also when I fill the car up completely, there is a strong smell of...

    Very sluggish E320 with very high rev counters

    Hi...would greatly appreciate any help. My 2001 E320 has been very sluggish over the past 2 weeks and the rpm on the tachometer is very high. Even when driving at 30mph, it goes to 3000rpm. At 40mph, it goes to 4000rpm. Anything over 40mph and it clearly struggles. It's as if something is...

    Sudden change up and sluggish running when cold

    Hi all, I've got a worsening problem with my 2005 SLK200 R171. When I start it up in the morning the idle sounds fine, I drive off in first and the autobox seems to upshift hard and a little early. If I slow in traffic when the engine temp is below 80 the car "bunny hops" a little in second...

    C220 Sports Coupe Sluggish

    Hello, We have a C220 Sports Coupe (Automatic) 143bhp. When the engine is warmed up and you are moving, the performance is fine. However, the card is incredably slow to react from a standing start (and is worse when the engine is cold) and I believe this car is known for being sluggish...
