engine check light stay on
I am a happy and new owner of a 1997 SL500 Sport and enjoy the ride. I chose this set of wheels over a Ducati scrambler as I'm 62 years young and simply think it's safer- while not compromising the excitement. I love the smooth power of the V-8 and when I put my head above the windshield its exactly like being on a big duke.
I do have a small problem. I find erractic engine RPM- 600 @ idle then jumps to 1200 while transmission is in park. This doesn't occur however while stopped at a light- foot on brake and in drive. On startup- cold engine there exist no erractic RPM changes while in park. Mileage 73,000.
Do you think I need to first clean or a new MAF meter? I don't know what scan codes my mechanic has found. Three times already the engine check light was reset but unusual engine condition returned within hours of leaving the shop.
Any comments, appreciated. Thank you.
