My 2004 Mercedes clk 320 starts up fine and will remain on when I'm in park or in neutral. When I place the vehicle in either drive or reverse the vehicle either lunges forward or backwards (depending on the gear I'm in) when I have the brake pressed down. The car will eventually stall. I am able to turn on the car and repeat the process. I was able to place the car in drive (quickly) and drive it homebut the minute I press the brake and am about to come to a stop the car stalls. Please help

The car is not showing a code when the check engine light comes on other than the brake lamp is out.

Do you hear a hissing noise with the brake pedal down? Will it idle in gear with the hand brake on and not touching the foot brake?
