Question about 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190
Driving on the interstate and could not get car to get above 40mph at 3500 rpm. stopped at parts store and got trans fluid and coolant and started driving again. halfway down the road engine lost all power and shut off. the vacuum hose was busted off and i had a massive oil loss under the car. i couldnt get the car started right away and when i did i couldnt get it above 2500 rpm. what things can i check or do to fix this problem. also the fan was spinning real slow.
Hello, You could have a stopped up fuel filter or a bad fuel pump or bad gas etc. If you overfilled the trans, that would explain the oil loss. It will also aerate the trans oil and make the trans not work properly. You didn't mention what vacuum hose was broken. This could also cause the engine to not run properly. You need to check the fuel pressure and supply and go from there. Make sure that the trans fluid is 10mm below the mark on dipstick when cold and on the mark when warm.
If fuel pressure and supply is correct you need to check the exhaust system for restriction.
