Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Engine boggs down when I punch it, then shuts down. 100,000 miles .
Had new Mass Air Filter replaced , no better results.
Any one have a answer.
Location of fuel filter , Fuel Pump and Fuel pump relay . I think I will replace all as it is original and never changed.
I had the same problem and had Mass Air Filter replaced. Same problem showed up.
Second time the dealers did a complete tune up. New spark plugs and wires. (2001 with only 46,000 miles). After the tune up, the car drive like new. And I drive the heck out of it. Pedal to the metal.

Sounds like a lack of air/oxygen problem. Just had a similar problem with a Diesel engine, Mercedes C220 CDI. Found the pipe to the Turbo spli/collapsed, so no air to Turbo = no power.
Try checking air inlet pipes to Fuel pump.
Also once had a problem with a different car dying on me in the outside lane of a motorway. Turned out to be a burned out fuse on the fuel circuit, after the breakdown mechanic's suggestions of maybe need new alternator, new injector pump, maybe new onboard computer. Turned out to be a twopenny fuse!!!
Check before you replace anything is my advioce. Go down to your local helpful garage or Mercedes Dealer if they are helpful.
