Question 1992 300e intermitent stall at stop

Hello out there. I am new to the forum and the world of Mecedes as well. I purchased a 1992 300e with 122,000 miles and, overall, I am very happy. However in the last two weeks, every now and then, when I come to a stop, the engine will cut out. At first it happened once in a week and it has gotten a little worse until today, it did this 5-6 times. Again, only as I am coming to a stop and the car will start again with a slight pump of the gas pedal. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Thank you for any help you may have. Michael

Thank you for replying to my post. I have not had a tune up done on the car as of yet, only because it seemed to be running smooth and well as it was. The other thing is, I tried to talk to the people who did a little work on the A/C fan when I first got the car (I liked them and the work they did) and he told me that it could be as small as a vacuum problem or leak, or as complicated as fuel distribution, which could run a couple grand! Yikes.

Let's start with a complete tuneup, including the fuel filter (help that "fuel distribution" along), that way all the usual suspects get eliminated.

Thumbs up Tune up

That sounds like a good plan. Today I was all over the place and it never happened! So, a step at a time.

Thanks again - on my way to tune up.

Michael
