MERCEDES WON'T IDLE - DIES WHEN YOU TRY TO PUT IT INTO DRIVE

1999 Mercedes Benz V230 • 50,000 miles

I replaced the fuel filter.
it will start and idles erratically and then dies. If I put it into Drive it just dies. It sounds like the air fuel ratio ir wrong.

Check for vacuum leaks. Check idle air control valve.
