I recently purchased my first Mercedes. I have a 2002 CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet with 56,000 miles and completely stock.
I love the car, it is amazing and have been wanting it for years.
However, I have been having problems with it since about500 miles after I purchased it. The Check Engine Light came on and the performance became very very poor, and the car would die when I stopped. Signs pointed to MAF, I have changed that, along with air filters, this did help the issue, but has not cured it. The performance has gotten slightly better, but is definitely not where it should be. It does seem to do much much better in the higher RPM range, 4500rpm+. The engine will cut out completely sometimes when I push the throttle past 50%. When it does accelerate with any power, it is very erratic, power, then no power,then lots of power, then less power, then it might die when you stop.
Very aggrevating, it is making my owning of this masterpiece less enjoyable than it certainly should be.
I am hear in hopes of finding solutions. Please do not hesitate to PM me if you have thoughts on my problem.
