88 560 sec rough idle

Hi,
I recently purchased my first Mercedes it is a 1988 560 sec. I had been looking for this car for a while and finally found one with a color combo I liked. Anyway the car has a rough idle. I had brought it to my mechcanit. He flushed the fuel injectors and said it should clear up. It has not. the car has plenty of power. It has a 111-k on her and runs and drives like A Dream,I wonder why I waited so long to buy one. If any one has any suggestions or help on this matter please let me know.
Thanks
Thomas

Hi,

For a "rough" idle, you may want to have your mechanic check the lambda on/off ratio.
It may never have been adjusted, and my experience is that *generally* the system
tends to go toward the "lean" side over the years (e.g, high control voltage), which will
cause a rough idle. Make sure any other needed maintenance is handled before tho,
especially your fuel filter. (A dirty/plugged fuel filter will affect the on/off reading.)

Vacuum leaks around the injectors will also cause rough idling.

Beautiful car, BTW...the 560 coupes are awesome vehicles...and in good condition, I
have a feeling they will be worth a LOT of money in the next 5-10 years.
