I had the same problem of loss of power with my Rexton E320, especially at low speed , I changed the plugs but the problem could not go away, until I changed the fuel filter and that problem is gone. I have made a lot of kms now without any such problem, try that, it might work.

SOURCE: 1995 C220 Car starts up fine, 2-3 min. later

I own a 95 c220, & it had the same problem, it would just quit running while I was driving it, almost as if it was running out of gas, or stalling. The MB dealer said that there was no code, & that there was nothing they could do. So I found a mechanic in germany online that knew what it was. He said to change the Fuel Relay, if you look in your car manual, under relays & fuses, it should show you where its located. Mine was in the trunk on the right side of the spare tire, and it was Green. It was about 50 dollars from the dealer & they had to order it. The mechanic also told me, to be safe, to also change the Main Engine Relay, which in my car was located on the passenger side, under the hood, close to the windshield. It was white with a clear top. It was about 75 dollars from the dealer, and it showed in my manual where it was located, so I was able to undo it myself. Its simple you just unplug em, & plug in the new ones. And I've never had a problem since, & changed em about 8 years ago, it might be worth looking into. If your Fuel relay is bad and its malfunctioning, it will stop gas from going to the engine, making it quit running. Hope this helps

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Sounds like you have moisture getting into your ignition somewhere. Have your mechanic look at it again but have him water down engine compartment, little at a time.

Engine Indicator Keep Blinking after repair and reset

If it's not the MAF, it might be the O2 sensor. However, a commonly misdiagnosed problem is the vaccuum lines. There are many of them, and sometimes they break or have leaks, and they are difficult to find. Make sure you get a vaccuum line diagram and check all the little hoses.
