Loss of Power...............
First of all Thanks in advance for looking at this.
I have a '99 W210. 3.2
Recently I have had problems with acceleration and loss of power.....
I start driving as normal all is fine, if I accelerate quickly the car kicks down a gear and responded as you would expect. FINE. But then when I continue with my journey the does not allow me to kick down gears and accelerate quickly....
At first I thought it might be in limp mode or something but was advised it will only
Go to third or second gear if that was the case. But in my case it changes gear as normal and goes to forth as expected.
When I stop and turn off the car and start off again it’s the same again starts off normal
For a mile or two later it losses power again.
I have been told it might be the Inlet Port Shut Off Motor?????
(What does this do???)
The Air Flow Sensor???? I replaced the air flow sensor but still the same.
