Question about 1993 Mercedes-Benz 190

2 Answers

Engine Stall I have a Mercedes Benz 1993 v2.6 190 special, I have been through hell trying to figure out why my car keeps stalling at a red light. I put in the recommended fuel quality and I always check the oil. But, it has been four times the car stalled on me. I would have to wait 15 minutes for it to start up again. It would have those violent, abrupt shakes before stalling. What do I do? The mileage is 124,200.

Change the fuel filter it maybe clogged, check for any vacuum leaks even at the intake manifolds
I would recommend trying STP fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank and make sure you have at least a half a tank of gas when adding and then finish filling it up and take the car out on the highway and drive it to run it through the fuel system and see if this helps and if it does then change the fuel filter

I recommend only using SeaFoam gas treatment for the Mercedes Benz when you have a problem with the fuel system. You might try inserting a can or two each time you fill up with gas. This will help the car run smoother at least to some degree. You may want to give it a couple or so tanks in order to notice any significant improvement. Repairs can be expensive on the Mercedes; but at least with the Sea Foam, it will help clean out any "clutter" within the fuel system.

What is causing my engine to stall at stop light?


Could be a number of things. Start with doing a fuel system clean and air filter swap. If that doesn't fix it. Look into crankshaft position sensor and the knock sensor.

Hi, My thoughts exactly ( fuel leak). Is this a deisel or gas engine?
In both cases be very careful with lights or cigarettes.
You can smell it when you get out of car in a garage or stall.
Good luck.

My 1995 mercedes S500 idles rough, and no power. Smells terrible of fuel. Sputters on acceleration. Check engine light came on . Acts as if to stall but keeps sputtering. Literally shakes the car.


I had a similar problem with my 1994 S420.
Before taking it to the shop check the following:
Distributor covers, Rotors and Spark Plugs. That's what my car needed. Before I did it two "specialized" MB mechanics wanted to replace the engine wiring harness ($1,000.00) and the other wanted to replace Air mass sensor, throttle valve actuator ($2,000.00) I hope that's all you need.

Engine keep turning off


It could be a part called the Idle control Valve. It regulates the Idle speed and keeps it smooth. If it is choked up with carbon gum or the little motor inside it is faulty then it will not allow enough air too pass for smooth idle. When you put your air con on the engine is under more load because it has too turn the aircon pump so it will stall. Also you have a little device on aircon cars that raise the idle a little to compensate for the extra aircon load. If this is not working it could be that.
