97 mercades benz C280, wont stay running

Issue, 97 C280, car did start and idle, most of the time it idles good and some times it was like a misfire, yesterday all it would do is start, idle up like normal then die. I have misfire codes for 2,3,4,5 cyl, I swapped the coil for 1&6 with 2&5, didn't change, I put plugs in it also. Fuel pressure is good, it also has a lean code but I couldn't locate a vacum leak. I have been told to put in a mass air flow but it seems to check out ok on a scan tool, any help??

Better question for your car's native forum. Search around or ask this on the W202 forum, you'll find it in the sedans section. Goos luck and welcome to BW.
