Shakes or Wobbles problem
2000 Mercedes Benz V280 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles

Hi gentlemen technicians,
I own a Mercedes v280 with factory fitted lpg system
Ihave never used lpg since bought three months ago
I have a misftre I hope my info is correct as I am going on the say of my mechanic friend who has been working on the vehicle in question.
I bought the v280 3 months ago without the misfire, two weeks later developed my current misfire problem.
Ihave spent £600. With my mechanic doing the work that I was advised to do my an exmercedes mechanic
This merc mechanic gave me a diagnostic which didnt do well in identifying the specific problem, a couple of codes were p1108 continuous positive, p1010 lamda sensor signal wire, p1037, idle speed control adaption,
p1319 minimum stop throttle valve sensor and some referance to a faulty lamda sensor? The same mechanic told be to start from the ground up so I changed plugs ht leads, my mechanic checked compression ok injectors ok? Bought two from breakersyard. Com and my mechanic changed an existing duff one of the two I bought, new injector ring seals, new manifold gaskets, fuel filter, I bought a cheap ign coil to test existing ok, I have not tried air mass sensor yet, well the costs are becoming an issue

I am at the point where I wonder if I have lost the vehicle, sold a melon so to speak, Could the timing chain be the problem I dont know Please can you help I am more than willing to donate but have problem transfering money over the net at this time, give me your address and I will send you donation cheque
Thanks gents hope you can help in some way, curiuos to read any possible replies Regards Gerry

Hi there,

Is this misfire show up as an induction backfire, a miss fire under hard acceleration, or a general rough running misfire that has no particular pattern?
