If you have special plugs (platinum for example), sometimes the center electrode slips down to nearly or completely contact the ground, killing the spark.
Not theory, have had it happen.
Another possibility is cracked ceramic allowing the high voltage to arc to ground before it can arc at the spark gap.

Probably a miss in one or more cylinders. That means a miss fire at low engine speed.
May need a "Tune Up" which in modern cars means new Spark plugs and plug Wires. Maybe a distributor cap too.

Our c180 sport is not running as well as it normally does on travelling on an 70 mile journey it will run well but on the return journey will not go above 70 miles an hour and sounds like a vw beetle

you are describing an engine miss fire, i think you have a bad spark plug or coil probably a good old fashioned tune up will fix the problem, just remember on a merc. to use factory original parts.
