I am now expert on ASR...
Let me explain MY ASR problem to you guys...
My 1995 S600 ran smooth...No problems.
Couple weeks ago, I let the car idle for overnight..about 10 hours.
I came out in the morning and there it was...with engine running...
I ran into the car and the temp was around 120 degree...(very closed to red-line).
I turned on all the fans on high heat to release the hot air and opened hood.
I tried to drive it in hope that the wind will dissipate the hot air.
I noticed ASR light for the first time ever...
Ever since then, the car is very slow to get up to the speed.
I have to almost put the "paddle to the metal" to get any sense of urgency.
It will go through all the gears but rather abruptly.
It will drive on freeway 70, 80 miles per hour no problem.
The car has very difficult time on any hills...
I did take it to a indy and the code reads ETA (it cost me $140 by the way)
He told me that replacing ETA may, may not fix the problem...
so, I am just a slow S600 driver.
