2001 C240 Loss of Power on Highway

Any suggestions. 2001 C240, Loses Power while driving on highway. Took to MB dealer, replaced accerator pedal switch, still have the problem. Pull over starts right up. ESP light comes on when power loss happens. Now gone to a new shop who is rebooting the computer with all the newest updates. Any suggestions we should check?
