    Hi guys

    I have a CLK 430 1999...

    It has a few problems...

    Lumpy idle when warm... car basically rocks?

    Lack of power between 2k and 4k revs feels like it's bogging... foot to the floor and no acceleration?

    Not really sure what's going on..
    Anyone enlighten me in any way???

    Thanks peeps

    I recently had similar problems with my CLK.

    Firstly, get the codes read. No point guessing.

    I also now swear by Cataclean and Redex.
