Hi, this is a common symptom of a clogged fuel filter that is straining the fuel pump itself.

When you accelerate, this initiates a rapid fuel flow through the lines. if the filter cant pass the proper amount, its will stall or hesitate the engine and cause sputtering or loss of power. due to this clogged filter, the pump cant keep up with your acceleration demands at this time. the reason for the power pick up upon De acceleration, is because the lower amount of fuel is able to pass through quite easily but, as soon as you demand more power, the clog will obstruct the more intense flow of fuel to the injectors.

Simply replacing the fuel filter and pump will fix this issue.

Please rate and god bless:)

I had the same problem with 1999 E300 TD 6-cylinder in-line engine. The problem was the o-ring on the pre-filter. Make sure all o-rings are tight and try putting small amount of silicone grease when installing them.

Most likely you have a leak in the system. Start at the pump, removing lines to see where you have vacuum and where you don't.

No such thing as a universal key. I would remove the rear seat and crawl through to release the trunk latch.
