I got a strange problem with my 190E which I am trying to resolve. From the beginning that i had the car, some 6 months now, the car would accelerate un eavenly. Say I'm at a red light and I step on the gas, say 50% throttle, the car will rev up to 1500 rpm and stay there for a second, and then it would contine on. This was bothering me a bit, but it did not cause any problems. However, now that I am replacing a few pieces of my fule delivery system, the car started acting a bit more strange then usual. Once I hit 3000rpm on the highway, sometimes, not always the engine will not give the power it should. It feels as if I'm pushing down the accelerator and releasing it all the time, also un eavenly. I have reasons to believe that somewhere along the way the fuel line might have a clog and this causes it. Next week i will receive my parts and I will replace a portion of the fuel line, I hope this is it, but if not, does anyone have any idea what it could be?
Replace your distributor cap, rotor, and coil. This will solve your problem . Hint, the coil fasteners are easily accessed from the wheelwell with a ratchet (just be sure to steer all the way to the left first) assuming you have a LHD car.
