I just received my repair quote from MB for almost $10,000
to do the following:
-Replace throttle valve
-Replace engine wiring harness
-Replace engine mountings
Not to mention they replaced my spark plugs for $500 and needless to say it didnt fix the problem. I guess being a girl with no idea on these things comes at a price.
The issues i'm having with my 1999 SLK230 are:
-Loss of power (particularly on highway which is ridiculously dangerous)
-Uncontrollable vibration of car
-Misfire each & every time i turn on car
To fix the prob temporarily I simply turn the car off & on again and it seems to work for a few km's give or take.
So, I've done a little bit of research and spoken to a few people and it seems to me this price is a joke.
Any ideas or advice would be GREATLY appreciated,
