Engine hestitate and stalling

Hi, I have a 2003 C230 kompressor sedan. The car chokes and slowly stalls while i am driving. Then the car comes to a stop but when i turn off the engine and restart the car again it will run fine. After awhile it does again. The display read 14 mile per gallons and when i warm up the car, i can smell the unburned fuel from the tailpipe. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

The check engine light went on on my 2003 MB c230. I took it for diagnostics and the shop shows a code of 201d-001 catalytic convertor is insufficient. It is a very pricey part. Should I have it rep


Hi,
Check the emissions warranty for your car - should be in the warranty and maintenance manual that came w/the owner's manual. The emissions warranty may be good 'til 100K miles and replacing the Catalytic Converter (CC) would be covered.

Also, call the MB dealer and ask 'nicely' about whether it's covered under a recall.

It could also just be a bad O2 sensor - not the CC. A failed 02 sensor can cause other issues or codes to occur.

But FIRST - have them reset/clear the code and see if it comes back....it may be a 'false-positive' and not really an issue.

BTW, don't disconnect your battery to reset the code - you may either lose your car stereo/codes or set off the alarm - unless you know how to fix both!

GL,

My 2003 Tiburon GT V6 5spd has been intermittantly hestitating and missing while at a contant speed and even stalling out from time to time. Also, the engine revs high at 2000 rpm then back down to 1000...


have you changed your fuel filter in the last year or so, if not. do it. a plugged up fuel filter will cause a lot of issues also. it can cause stalls, hesitation and stumbling.
