Hi, have you checked the cap and rotor arm, sometimes the spark will track back to the h/t instead of going to the lug in the cap hence a misfire also the rotor can have a hairline crack producing the same symptom check both for cracks, this may be the problem hope this helps

What config motor? I'm confused is it a 4 litre straight 6 or a V configeration. If straight 6 spray aerostart around nr 1 intake manifold to head if idle picks up you need a new intake gasket this is very common. is it missing at idle, under load (up hill) or both. does it have coil overs (coil on each plug or old leads set up?

How to adjust idlefor 1992 mercedes benz 190 e 2.6


do you want to adjust the idle up or down? If your car has too high of an idle, you probably have a vacuum leak. buy a can of starting fluid. Start the car and lightly start spraying starter fluid all over the intake. You will hear the engine change RPMs. When it does, that is where you have a leak. If you want to idle your car up, you will need to adjust your throttle plate. Where your throttle hand moves when you rev your engine, it has a little screw that you can adjust to make the throttle arm stop sooner, allowing more airflow into the engine.

Self-adjusting idle brain often idles 1500-2000rpm range.


Faulty oxygen sensor or low fuel pressure can also cause these codes to be set. I'd go for a fuel pressure test when acting up if at all possible just to confirm I have pressure needed. Have heard of coil problems as well. Should be a good blue 1" min. spark from coil.

BTW 190e does not have limp home mode so there is a real problem. Hope this helps
