Both are very common problems on this engine. P0015 is a symptom of bad camshaft adjuster solenoids. See the photo below for which one. However, I'd go ahead and replace all four. You can buy them from an online MBZ dealer for about $100 for all four. The other fault is likely a broken linkage on the front of the intake manifold. This vacuum-actuated mechanism is used to operate the tumble flaps. The official repair is to replace the manifold, but there are repair kits that can be used to replace the broken plastic with metal parts.

Okay thanks rudeney! I’ll go ahead and tell the mechanic to replace all 4 adjuster solenoids next time I go. The car has evolved a slight shake when stopped and I’m assuming it’s the camshaft problem that’s doing it, or could it be the engine mounts?

The camshaft magnets won's cause vibrations. it is most likely engine mounts. Colder weather will make their age more noticeable.
