2004 E320 sputters at stop fign but doen't die

I have a 2004 E320. When it gets to a stop it sputters and idles really rough as if it will die but doesn't. I have replaced the Air filters, spark plugs and also checked for vacuum leaks. Any help as to what to check next?

Agreeing with the previous poster. My single fuel filter on the 2001 E320 was due at 60,000 miles but I let it go until 80,000 with no ill effects. How many miles on your car and has it ever been changed?
