Question about 1987 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 190 Class
Hello, I have a specific question about my Mercedes 190e auto 2.6.
During driving, I sometimes notice that it temporarily loses power as if I had touched the brake lightly, then suddenly picks up again. In extreme examples it loses power completly and stalls (even though it's an auto). I then have to coast into a layby, turn off the ignition and re-start it (which it does with no problem). I know that I have had a few electrical problems (my heater no longer works and used to keep blowing fuses) and a past similar power loss lead to complete death of the vehicle in that I couldn't start it at all. In that instance I took it to the garage and an auto-electrician traced round and found that that was due to a single frayed shorting wire underneath the fusebox. For the current problem, someone suggested it could be an incorrect air/fuel ratio. I noticed that the air hose (between the air scoop and filter) is cracked most of the way round - could that be the source cause of the problem? Or am I just being hopeful here?
You may have a loose connection under the fuse box, same thing happended to me in a Rover Viteses
Another problem caused by hanging a bunch of keys on theignition lock causes the lock to wear and as the keys swing it cuts the ignition
