1996 E320 misfire problems
Hello, i am new to the forum as well as the car! I was trying to sell it and when the person took it for a test drive, the check engine light came on as well as the check electronics. It started to sputter and lose power, barely made it back. It has been running like a charm. I set in it and started it and it sounded awful, and for a brief moment it said battery charging? We have cleaned the MAF and took it an auto store to find out what the codes were and they stated that it was in need of a tune up, plugs and wires. We changed out plugs, not wires yet, sounds better, but still rough. I read a post on here that said this
"today i changed the plugs to e3 spark plugs, flipped the coils and cleaned the maf with maf spray. what a huge difference!!! the car runs great!!! lets see if this was the problem and if it keeps running like a champion. my fingers are crossed.
cjshade thanks for your help!!!
What does he mean by he flipped the coils? (did he change them or move them arround etc.) I am low on money, this is why selling the car, so any advice would be appreciated.
