Ok guys here is the situation as it stand today. My repair guy was not in the shop Friday so I did not let them fix it. I just don’t trust the other guys there since I had a problem with another Benz I owned. Any way more on point.

I went to AutoZone today to get the fault code read, thanks for that tip guys, and he came back with six. 5 were engine misfires so I need a tune up which I will get Wed. when my mechanic returns. However I also got a fault for

P1170 ESO Engine shut off fault what ever that is.

P0400 Malfunction in the Gas Recirculation Flow.

The other codes were as follows: P0300, P0302, P0304, & P0306

Ok guys help me out here what do you think I should say to my mechanic. I like to sound informed so that things are done that only need to be done and I am not taken for a ride. Also the car is smooth until I have to press the gas hard to try to pass and it will start choking out. All I have to do is turn off the car and restart and it goes away.

What steps should I take guys any idea? I want Wed. to be the last day I deal with this. Oh also I have some dark green hose that is not connected under the hood. It is about the circumference of a coffee straw but that is all I can figure from it.

If you have a code for gas restriction you have a problem. Obviously gas is having trouble getting to the injectors, which in turn will set off random multiple missfires hence code P0300, and codes 301,302,303, and etc mean which cylinder had a missfire. For example P0303 = means cylinder 3 random missfire. I doubt you need a tune up, and coil pack failure on a 113 is very rare. Sounds to me that you either have a bad fuel filter which is restricting fuel flow to injectors thus creating a lean missfire condition. Have your toons at the shop reset all codes, drive the car with a fuel pressure guage installed and verify under normal driving conditionts that a minimum of 55 psi remains at the fuel rail. Under WOT you should see an increase of 10 psi at atmosphere. Hope this helps.

Great info Josh that makes very good sense. I will have the fuel filter changed and have a pressure test done on the fuel line.

Thanks
