My 1995 E320 Wagon is having an engine stall problem.
This is a video showing how the M103 engine idles roughly and then stalls.
At 00:37, the RPM gauge starts jumping;
at 01:05, the RPM gauge starts another round of jumping, and it is more violently this time, which leads to the engine stall itself at 01:23, all lights are illuminated.
Could anyone provide any thoughts? Thanks. :bowdown:

The first thing I would do is check for vacuum leaks. Can you start the car immediately after the stall occurs? I had a similar problem awhile back and I was advised to check for vacuum leak(s) and I found a vacuum line cracked I replaced all new vacuum lines as the others seem just as brittle a little preventive maintenance under the hood and I haven't had a problem since. Mine was pulsating just as yours is, but never stalled out
My vehicle is 25 years old so I thought is would be a great idea to check all the air intact hoses as well, especially around the ICV. Good luck
