I have a 1988 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3L. Before I state the problem, it might be helpful to give some background information. The car has been sitting for over 4yrs. No movement at all. It had an engine rebuild prior to the 4yr period. On its first trip in years, the check engine lights flashing. While the light is flashing, the car either hesitates and jerks while driving or stalls while idling or stopped. So, if the gas pedal is not down, the car will shut off. This seems to only happen after the engine is warm/after about 15 to 20 mins of driving. But of course there are exceptions. Sometimes it starts right up n shuts right off. After a bout 2 months of this, the problem has not gotten any better or worse. Can you help me?
have the same problem?
