Question about Mercedes-Benz E320

Engine light flashes when accelerator pedal is applied accompanied by severe power loss and trouble revving up

Car is a 1999 Benz E320. Engine starts and idles smooth until accelerator pedal is applied. Car then begins to have difficulty increasing RPM (severe power loss), engine-light then begins to flash. (engine coolant, oil, and all other fluids are of factory recommended specs and at proper levels) Car has approx. 90k on odometer and has been in great working order since first bought

    Makes a lot of sense. I was a little less inclined to think that may be the case as it does idle smooth and everything else checks out fine.... but its a little more sophisticated than a 22R toyota and finding the fuel filter itself costs $89, I dare not buy a code reader! I will look into this! Thank you!

The check engine light is flashing to alert you to the fact that the engine has a missfire in the ignition system, don't continue to drive this with the condition or u can overheat and damage the catalytic converter.

Sudden loss of power, Backfiring, starts then stalls


Your timing belt could be broken. You want to have this checked as soon as possible to prevent any further engine problems.

Most likely a gas cap or emissions issue, if you are sure the car is running fine. But you will have to have it scanned to know for sure.
