1999 Mercedes Benz C230 4 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 137000 miles
The other day I was driving my son to school and my check engine light came on. I noticed that the car was acting funny vibrating an idling very hard. When I push on the gas to accelerate the car surges before getting up to speed. It's missing or skipping, but once I get up to normal freeway speed it goes just fine. When I sit at an interesection the car sort of putts then when I accelerate it acts like it not getting any gas or air or something. I took it in for a tune up tinking it was the spark plugs and when I got back in the car it seemed fine but as soon as I got on to the freeway same thing. The shop wanted to charge me $90 just to diagnose the problem and then whatever charges on top of that to fix the problem. Could it be the fuel injectors or the O2 sensor?
