For any others with similar problems with ML270, the MAF could be the issue!!! My problem was a bit confusing..... car would drive perfectly for for hours but as soon as car was stopped and then restarted there was suddenly no power. Car would drive but would not rev above 2300rpm! Very sluggish. Next day all was good with full power again until car was stopped. Then same problem... I did a simple check... in the morning when all was good I disconnected electrical connection to the MAF (with the engine running) and then found again no power!!!! Reconnected and instantly off again with full turbo boost. (After stopping engine and restarting again no power!!!!!)
Thought that a new MAF (after market?) might be an option. I'm in Australia so a quick search found several sites in Europe that offered very reasonable prices compared to what is available in OZ. (au$30 vs au$180+!)
Made purchase and waited for arrival with some trepidation.
It came...I installed it and the car went like a rocket!!!!!!
All I can say is that interpreting the posts made by others on the forum has saved me hundreds of dollars in service costs. Thanks.
