1997 E420 issues

My E420 drives fine but recently had to bring to the dealer for diagnostic
The problems I have is:

Carbon built up on right cylinder head. I had this same problem on March 2001 and December 2005. In both cases they had to remove the cylinder head and clean the fuel injection port (Right cylinder). And now the dealer says its the same problem again.... Is there a less expensive way to fix it without paying $3000.00 to remove the cylinder head?

The ASR message came on and when I drive it seem like the ASR is trying to engage because I can feel the brakes engaging when I drive. What could be the cause of the ASR message. All the dealer can tell me is ASR fault C1022-000 communication wiht ME N3/10

Now the ASR message is gone and the car is driveable. Is it safe to drive the car? The car has 139K miles, is it time to get a new car?

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
