W108 (M130) - Engine bogs down when low revs / revving
So for 1½ years, my W108 has been in and out of several garages because of injection related issues (mechanical injection). Nearly all the issues have been solved, however it still has issues pulling itself along when you're at really low revs, say below 1500. It's very noticeable when you have to get rolling in first gear, and the engine shakes and has issues revving up if you put it into neutral and give it a few shots of gas. If you slowly rev it up, it fires perfectly fine, but if you give it quick small bursts of gas, it sounds like it runs on 3 cylinders.
Does this sound familiar to any of you?
Thanks for reading!
