I recently purchased a 99 slk230, was one of those deals that are too good to pass up, problem is when i turn the car on it starts well, goes up in rpm but immediately looses power, and does not stay on. even at full throttle it only sputters and wont go past around 500 rpm, the engine sounds good for those first couple of seconds but I cant get it to stay on let alone take it for a spin. can anybody offer any advise? taking it to the dealer is not a real good option right now, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked for codes?
That's where I'd start.
How'd you get it home?

I havent yet figured i would do that today

I had it towed home, it was an amazing deal that I couldnt pass up, I figured worst case that I would have to replace the engine it would still be a great deal but I heard it run so I know its nothing internal.

appreciate the help.
