190E 2.3
I have a 1993 190E 2.3 w/ 109k. It is in very good condition. This is the first Mercedes I have owned. The care seams to run fine compared with 4 cylinder cars I have owned. A little sluggish at low rpms (under 3000) but absolutely no power going up hill. You have to run at 4500 to 4500rpm just to pull it. I am just wondering is the 190E 2.3 (8 valves) shy on low end power are is there something wrong with my car? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
 
Might be an MAF ? Someone with more knowledge than me will correct me in a sec :)

Definitely something wrong. Check whether the brakes are not seized. If auto, fluid change and posssibly more the ECU.
