Engine Performance problem
1991 Other Mercedes Benz Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 91,000 miles
I have a 1991 Mercedes Benz 300SL. During the summer I experience a " near stall" when starting up from a stop sign or red light. The car sputters and nearly stalls when asked to move forward from an idle. This lasts about 5 seconds and then the engine seems to " catch" and takes off. This happens only when the ambient temperature is over about 80 degrees. Yes, it runs great in the winter!
I hope someone has some ideas. My dealer has none. Thanks!
