c280 stalls when idleing

can anyone tell me why when the car is running it will cut off when at idleing. It stops everywhere, the light, stop sign, highway intersection. It usually starts right back, but sometimes it will take around 15 minutes to start back up. Please help. The car has 52k mile only.

Hi Loretta.

[:D][:D]It is supposed to stop at
those places.[:D][B)]LOL[B)][^][}:)]

When was the last time the fuel filter
was changed?
If you run your gas tank low often then
you will get crud in the lines and
clog the filter.

Having your injectors cleaned could help too.
I run some fuel injector cleaner once in a while.
But a more intence cleaning is needed every
so often.
Only a service center/mechanic can do this
since he has the tools and machines to do
the job right.
