Problem with my ML430

I have a problem with my ML, it is a 2000 model, got 91 thou on the clock and all of a sudden it is trying to die on me when I drive it. From low speed when the engine is at normal running temp, when you go to accelerate the engine dies right doen the revs dip and then the car decides it wants to go then it goes......for example when your travelling and you deaccelerate then press the pedel again the eingine dies right down and almost splutters, then it selects its gear and goes. also when the car is stationary if you press the gas pedel then again the engine almost dies first and splutters then the revs pick up. when driving i thought it might be the a/t but its doing it when the car is stationary too. Note also thought this does not happen all of the time, just sometimes. please help me as I don't know what it could be.

Many thanks.

The usual suspect is crankshaft position sensor.

You can search for this and probably find a lot. Note that ML320 and ML430 use same sensor.
