Post New User: Just bought a 98 W202 Estate

Hi everyone,

I'm the proud new owner of a 98R W202 C200 Auto Elegance Estate with
174k on the clock!
Bought as a family wagon as I've got a little one due in 4 Months and as I've previously owned a 98 CLK200 Sport and loved it, I wanted something similar but practical.
I'm sure I will get to know the little foibles and common problems in the next few weeks!
I've joined to share my findings as I get stuck into getting this beauty up to scratch. It's not in bad nick and got full history but in my experience with older cars, there's still money to be spent and time tinkering!

In only two days, I've already noticed a throttle/engine hesitation when pulling away as if momenarily it's going to cut out but then it gets going no problem. Didint have this on my CLK and dont know if it's a known common issue...

Any ideas anyone? Many Thanks in advance!....

Thanks for the welcome. No I havent checked any codes yet. Does this require hooking it up to a diagnostics computer?

If so I havent got one and assume this means taking it to a main dealer or specialist?
