It sounds like 1 of 2 things. Either the plug wires are not pushed on all the way or they are the wrong size. When the plug wires fall off it causes your cylinders to miss and make the car run really bad. I would check the plug cables, Very easily they just are not seated all the way. If that is not the case then they are the wrong size.

Incorrect gap in spark plug, check plug wires for broken or loose connections. Fuel filter may be clogged or impurities in the fuel system. Check for a vacuum leak at throttle body or in vacuum hoses. Hope that Helps. Need more help email me.

Fuel injectors go bad on these engines, you can find re manned ones for 30 bucks. If you have an engine light on get that read. Change your coil/wires/plugs also. Is the lower intake manifold gasket leaking coolant yet? You may want to get that replaced also. Check the TPS too (throttle positioning sensor) those will also cause your engine to act up

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.
