Hi, from Tucson, Arizona

I was just looking for some solution for high idle on my 1985 380SL, and looking at the abundant info in the website, decided to register.

I am greatly impressed! My 380 needed new injectors (old mechanical type) and I installed them all. Had a little difficulty removing ther retaining screws. Now I have to find where the vacuum leak is.

The dreaded high idle

Welcome aboard, please fill out your CP showing your city and cars model and year.

Try searching the archives with key words for this issue, which is common, often idle air control valve can be a good first place to look.

High idle is a problem that crops up regularly with these engines
