Hi, i have a 1993 Mercedes 300E 2.8 Liter. I love my car and I have decided to finally do some of the very necesary work on it. There are a lot of non mechanical things stereo, driver window, mirror, etc, which I will do in a few weeks. But my main concern right now is the engine. About two years ago it started doing this thing where sometimes when i pushed the gas, it sounded like it imediately started running on 5 cyclinders becuase it became ruff, and had no power at all. If i continued to floor it after a few seconds, it would kick in and light up the street. It went on for about 6 months and I had no time to fix, and then it went away on its own. But recently it has reapeared. I haven't replace the plugs, wires, or cap, since 66,000 and now it has 173,000 so that was my first thought. Any ideas, I also read from another post with someone having a similar problem that he soaked his Idle control valve and that did the trick. Please help. Thanks
