Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Mercedes Benz 300se 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles

I'm looking at purchasing a 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE with 180,000 miles from the original owner. Owner states that the engines wants to die when coming to a stop. Owner simply keeps foot on gas and shifts car into neutral to prevent this. I'm wondering what the problem is and how expensive it will be to fix? This is my first experience with a german car and any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
