    I think it might be the fuel filter, that could be clogged-up and needs to be cleaned or replaced, but where do I then find it??, where is the fuel filter on the MB A160 located??

SOURCE: My mercedes Benz C 220 stalls when I come to a stop or in park .

Is the AC on? The compressor can take alot of power and make it lope. Engine mounts can make it shake. coils, cap, rotor and wires for tune up at a minimum. EZL if you can find one cheap. MAF also can cause issue. If it is a 1991-1995 check the engine wiring harness as they get brittle and degrade.

It could just be the fuel injection tips have black tar build up. But, this sounds like the typical, 1980's problem with people who used to put cheap gas in their mercedes. You get gunk buildup in your gas pump. When the car is hot, the gunk expands and you get no gas flow. First try about 4 applications of puting a bottle of good fuel injection cleaning fluids in only half tank gas and let it run almost dry. If you don't see a substantial change, don't even waste your time playing with it trying to clean anything, those are only agrivating band aids on a broken leg. Change the fuel pump! your car should be as good as new.

I have problems with Bosch spark plugs. But I love the Bosch ultra premium ignition wires
Also check for vauume leaks, intake hoses tight.etc.

2003 Mercedes-benz Sprinter cdi 316 cuts out and doesn't start


Hi, My thoughts exactly ( fuel leak). Is this a deisel or gas engine?
In both cases be very careful with lights or cigarettes.
You can smell it when you get out of car in a garage or stall.
Good luck.
