Hesitation and Frustration

I have a Mercedes 1998 C200 estate 160,000 Miles I have a problem with high idle spend and hesitation on acceleration. If I switch off the engine and restart again the car is ok for a while and then goes back as before. I have had the Throttle Body reconditioned and this seemed to cure the problem for awhile but the problem has come back!

I have also chaged the air mass sensor,coils,lambda sensor and the spark plugs.
What Next?

Any Ideas[xx(]

RE: Hesitation and Frustration

its your air idle valve i had the same problem on my 300ce. a new one is expensive, open the box and clean the valve of all the crap or replace it which ever one you want i guarantee that will do the trick.

ps opening the box is a bI- - h.
