HELP please

I just purchased a slk 230 1998 98,000 miles. No power . I think it is a vacuum leak but i can't find a diagram so i can fit the problem. Cute little car but the back windows won't come back up again. oh i'm sure there are other little problems , but one step at a time. The most important is the engine vacuum leaks. Thanks to every body who can stop me from banging my head on the ground .

oh please tell me where i can get a good shop manual

It's under the hood. You might want to go and get a scan done. My bet is you have MAF and o2 sensor code's.

Another case of a dirty MAF?
