Question about 1993 Mercedes-Benz 190

1 Answer

The car wont go about 20 miles and hour but the RPMs rev upHELPME

About a month ago I left work did not make it out of the parking spot and my car spitter and sputtered and just died on me I started it only with a little bit of trouble. for about two months my automatic mercedes 1993 190E will rev up when you press the peddle it will move but not very fast and it sounds like it needs to go up a gear but it wont. A minute will pass and it will kick into gear the reving noise will stop and the car will jump forward. This is when I think it kicks into a higher gear.

finally::::: when I left for work today I got a mile down the road and I was going about 50 when it started slowing down to 40 even though I was accelerating it did the reving thing and would not accelerate past 40 then dropped to 30 25 20 then under 8MPH but would rev sounded like a stick shift that was in 1st gear and needed to be shifted into 2nd. It spittered and sputtered a little I turned around and managed to make it back to my house. the closer I got to my house it got a little better but im afraid to drive anywhere so what do I do ? what is the problem? water in my fuel line? transmission going up? cracked distriputer cap? HELP im a girl and dont know to much about cars!!!!!!

Have the engine checked for vacuum leaks, that will cause a high idle speed. As a 35 year veteran of auto repair I can tell you that engine flushs are a 100% waste of your hard earned money.

I had a similar problem a few months ago. Ready to get major engine work done, got fire, timing was right, getting gas.....
An experienced mechanic asked where the car had been parked and how long. I had parked it in grass, over a wet spot. The battery was dead too. He told me to park it over a warm spot for a few days and try a new battery. Did that, with the hood open, replaced the battery, and it fired right up. Something about being too damp and/or the voltage in the battery was too weak.. All I know is it worked, and I drive it every day and don't park in wet grassy spots.

Hi Tom your vehicle is equipped with a Rev limiter it will not allow you to rev the engine above 4000 with the trans in park; as for the first problem you may have one of two things, one of the spark plugs or spark plug wires is bad or you have a flat spot on the throttle positioning sensor in which case have be replaced. Good luck?

Hi

You need to go to a shop with a code reader. The check engine light was telling you something and you need a code reader. Depending on which country you are in, if in the states autozone may have it for free.

Whatever initiated the light is now messing up the other parts of the car.

Hope that helps.
