Shouldnt do!

Check that fan is coming on. If is not the fan temp sensor may be dead, or the fan may not have power (I had a bad earth on one)
Also, not sure if this model has a traditional thermostat - these can stick closed, and will cause the vehicle to heat up fast, stay hot, and overheat in traffic

SOURCE: best ways to keep my 1996 mercedes benz c class

Oil changes every 6,000 miles with new filter too.

New spark plugs, HT leads and distributor cap every 12,000 miles.

Let it warm up properly in the morning before moving off.

Clean air filter or replace ever 12,000 miles.

Clean out the intake manifold with carb cleaner to remove nasty deposits.

That should help your engine last a very long time.

Hope this helps and vote for if you think so. Thanks

It starts normally but loses acceleration after driving a short while and will then idles rough

If you are having a problem with no acceleration or stalling or rough idle then you could have a Mercedes ecu that is bad. These computers have bad solder joints, capacitors and many other problems. I guess I could help you better if you can provide the ecu part number. Also there is a list of part numbers here at the website Hopefully, this information will help you.

Feels like my 280 has a vacuum leak it is idling rough and the air keeps blowing slow then fast any ideas?

the best way to find a vacuum leak is to buy throttle body cleaner as it is combustible, if you spray around the hoses and manifold base and you see that the engine idle goes up or down you have found you vacuum leak. a lot of times on old cars, the hoses start deteriorating with age and heat.

1994 C220 mercedes stalling problems

check your main harness wire. The harness wire becomes brittle and will eventually short circuit your car. Stalling and hard starting is the initial symptom. If not replaced soon, your car will smoke and eventually affect your computer box
