Started 60 days ago. When driving there is a little " skip" --it seems too small to call a miss--something like hesitation when tranny shifts. It comes as infrequently as every 10 minutes or sometimes several times in a row. Occasionally, it won't happen in half hour. Independent garage cleaned injectors--I was skeptical but agreed. There was no improvement. Drove 1/2 hour to Merc dealer. Never skipped on the way. Nevertheless. They put it on analalyzer and couldn't find anything. IT SKIPPED ON THE WAY HOME. Only thing I can see is that it does not happen over 50 and seems to come under light acceleration beginning about 35. Any idea will be welcome.
Ck the above Merc topic " car jerks with acceleration, engine miss too". With 65,900 mi on it now, my '94 Gr Marquis transmission problem started with exact symtoms you describe, a little 'skip' once in a while. Have your transmission cked. (Read the posts on topic above.) These online mechanics on this site know their stuff, and I trust them MORE than the mechanics in my town. Wish one of them could do my repair! (I'm not at all knowledgeable about cars.)

Thanks. I read that thread. Could be it, but my symptoms are much less than you describe. I'll see if others respond.
I wonder if I should try the MAF interior sensor wire cleaning that was mentioned. Sounds like it couldn't hurt, might help.
