I have a 1997 c230 and I'm having some problems. It runs and drives but sometimes it starts missing like crazy till I pull over and shut it off. I can start it back and it runs good for a little bit sometimes. I ran codes and got a cylinder 1 and cylinder 4 missfire so i changed plugs but it didnt help. I need help

Sounds like you've got an ignition coil going bad if you're missing on two cylinders. Swap the coils around and see if it starts missing on 2&3. If it does replace your coils.
