Help wanted on '02 W203


We have a problem with a '02 c180 kompressor (w203). Right after starting in the morning and pulling the shifterhandle into drive or reverse, the engine starts to hickup, occasionaly stalls for about 30 seconds. After that the problem is no longer at hand. We changed the airflowmeter, throttlehousing and both O2 sensors. Nothing helped. We don't know where to resolve the problem anymore. Please advice or give directions where to search.

Thanks in advance,
Ing. Richard Berwald

Hello to you all,

Problem is found. The distribution chain is stretched to much which causes the timing to get get out of range. When the engine warms up, the variable timing corrects this so it seems to be solved, but actually it isn't. So 4hrs of labor and a new chain resolves this issue.

Thanks to all of you who'm tried to help.
