    Hi there

    I have justed joined and I have just purchased my first Merc, but I have a problem that I hope you guys might be able to help me with.

    Its a mercedes c class c220 cdi 2002 automatic UK model 98,000 miles and the problem is that it keeps going into limp home mode and nothing shows up on my dash board. It does it quite a bit mainly when I accelerate fairly hard. and then it wont go above 3000rpm. It seems to run ok apart from this problem, so I assume it could be an electrical fault as it is not all the time. Any ideas guys im really worried that I have been ripped off, and it is such a shame as I have wanted one of these all my life and I want to keep it, I have just paid a local garage £150 to put in a new maf sensor and it has made no difference but he said the car needs to get used to it in about 40 miles, is this true? Is there anyone out there near Halifax, west yorkshire with the appropriate diognostics?

    Thanks

    No they don't need to settle in ! If you have a split charge pressure hose or intercooler leaking that will give the issues you complain of under harder acceleration.
