Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Mercedes Benz E200 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 180000 miles
Car starts OK first thing in the morning. Engine is cold but air temperature is never less than 12 degrees C as I live in a warm climate.
After engaging 1st gear and pressing accelerator the engine struggles to pick up for 5-10 seconds before functioning normally and I am able to drive as normal. Problem doesn't occur other than after first starting car in the morning.
Have replaced the throttle actuator recently but problem remains. Any suggestions on what is causing this problem?
