Check the fuel pump(S). If memory serves the fuel pumps are in tandem in plastic box on the underside beneath the near side passenger seat. Even though the box keeps most of the elements at bay corrosion will eventually have its effect. First check the fuses and the also the OVP relay unit fuse. The OVP sits behind the battery and is in a 6cm x 6cm x 10cm black box. The lid lifts off and beneath it there is a clear plastic hinged door within which is a 10Amp spade type fuse. I mention this as on some models power is supplied to the fuel pump via the Over Voltage Protection relay. If all looks OK check that no vacuum pipes coming off the intake manifold have come loose and that there are no other possible sources of air leak. If everything OK it is time to get under and look at the pump(s) and the fuel filter which sits along side it. Check power supply. Overhaul pump and replace fuel filter as appropriate.

Car starts to stop by itself when foot is not on pedal.

Time to see your dealer's service department unless this a feature of the car. Has it always been this way since new? It is shifting itself to first gear which would certainly slow the car down.

My 1988 300 se wont start. turns over and may

The fuel shut off valve is not getting the correct amount of vacuum OR the fuel shutoff valve is failing.

You will need 1/2 to go over EVERY SINGLE vacuum line and check for leak.

Even it's look OK. Give it a little push to ensure 100% seal connection.

If this does not help then the vacuum switch next to the steering lock (behind dash) may be leaking or failing.

The switch is about $36 from the Mercedes dealer.

Good luck

My Mercedes SLK320 wont let the gas pump add gas to my tank. The pump nozzle constantly sheuts offunless pumping very very slowly.

Not sure if it's a vacuum issue.... I will just push back the rubber seal and input the nozzle....Then it will dispense the gas....Not sure why..... It only happens at certain gas stations..
Good Luck!
