Post '93 230E W124 idling problem

Hi,

I have a '93 Mercedes Benz W124 Manual. i have noticed that the car stalls when it is stationary and a gear is engaged. It does not stall immeadiately it will take about 15 seconds, but if in neutral it will idle normally.

It stalls in gear only if the clutch is engaged, so if i am creeping along in traffic it will stall, therefore i have to constantly drive forward and put into neutral to prevent the car from stalling, this solves the problem but is very irritating.

does anyone know what is causing this problem?
