Did the car go to a Mercedes Benz dealer for the repairs ? if no then was the air flow meter replaced with a geniune meter or was a cheap alternative off the internet costing £35?
If it was the cheap alternative then you will need to either buy one from Mercedes or find a Bosch agent near you and buy one there.
The air flow meter is self adapting so no need to reset with star etc.

Benz is a club of its own /the benz service dealer is god and you pay large and they keep the repair information so top secret that it is hard to second guess them or question there repairs,they can bill you and you never see a improvement and you return and they charge you again for some other repair out of all the cars in the world benz takes first place for this good luck nobody knows the car better than the dealer, you may want to research a corner shop repair specializing in benz and get the one to one relationship for youself, COULD BE A FUEL SYSTEM PROBLEM ,PRIMING FUEL PUMP OR FUEL PUMP OR CLOGGED FUEL STRAINER IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A FUEL FILTER

My chevy blazer 2000 ha a p0101 code changed the mass air flow sensor still does not want to accelerate

Hi there:
This code is set when the MAF (Mass Air Flow) meter is not sending the PCM the correct information. This can be due to a bad conection of the rubber intake hose between the MAF and the Throttle plate opening, a dirty air filter, a dirty mass air flow or a bad mass air flow.

Most programmer have you tie into the iat sensor in the mass air flow. this can cause the the iat sensor oto short out.

Hope helps.

Acceleration problems. bogs down when accelerating. acts like its not getting enough air

Have you checked the filter and box I had one that rats or squirrels got in and built a nest. Pull the breather hose and see what you get.Could be clogged fuel injectors and getting too much air and not enough fuel???

Good luck!!!

I have a 1995 ford taurus engine stalls when idling and smells of gas when accelerating it bucks. Changed fuel filter, could it be mass air flow sensor?

Start with smaller problems and check the fuel pressure regulator, the mass air flow sensor for these vehicles is pretty pricy. Is the check engine light on? If so, head to your nearest auto zone and have them check for trouble codes. If the check engine light isn't on, its not likely your mass air flow sensor

My car doesnt accelerate like its supposed to do.It seems to me like it boags down when i push the gas but when i let off the gas a little it will accelerate slowly.It has no power, once you get to going...

try to have your intake manifold and air filter cleaned. Also, try to replace the fuel filter. these are usually the culprits for the problem that you are experiencing.

Engine Indicator Keep Blinking after repair and reset

If it's not the MAF, it might be the O2 sensor. However, a commonly misdiagnosed problem is the vaccuum lines. There are many of them, and sometimes they break or have leaks, and they are difficult to find. Make sure you get a vaccuum line diagram and check all the little hoses.
