IDLE

1987 Mercedes Benz 420sel

Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Mercedes Benz 420sel Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles

My car sits in park and idles at 2000 rpms when I put it into gear it lunges into the gear and the rmp are automatically dropped down to under 1000. Also my car keeps dying like the battery keeps draining and I purchased a new battery a little over a year ago
