ENGINE STARTS AND SHUTS RIGHT OFF

1996 Mercedes Benz C280

Engine Performance problem

This car takes too many trys to keep running and then it has rough idle or will shut off when coming to a stop. Once while driving it just quit. What is wrong, where do I start

Sounds like a bad mass air flow sensor. When these go bad, the give a false readin to the computer and causes a rough idle, hesitation and can cause the engine to die.
