Dissapointed ! Is this a maf or tranny prob:(

Hi All.
New member here from Galway west of Ireland. Picked up a 1998 clk 230 Kompressor (sport) last week.The problem is hard to describe. well Acceleration is ok but not fast. It will reach motorway speeds. Push hard on the throttle nothing much happens it will change down then stick in that gear and hold rev about 5k until you lift your foot slightly and then it will change. Press the kick down button and the car will rev up but hardly any acceleration. Normal driving not under load and it will change through the gears fine. Also after trying to drive hard the engine will misfire at idle and I turn the engine off and on again and its fine. locally there is no decent garage to read the codes if any. The car passed its NCT before i bought it last week and the emission test was well within the limits. I am scared to try and overtake due to the poor acceleration .Its ashame its the best car I have ever owned and it does not have the power to match its looks. Any help would be greatly appreciated Steve

Steve, welcome to the forum. Try asking your questions on the proper CLK forum. I think yours might be called a W208 and those guys are found in the coupe and cabriolet section.
