To start with the E420 doesn't have an over-voltage relay like the E320/C280 cars! Stalling can be caused by carbon build-up on the throttle plate. The throttle body bolts directly to the intake manifold. There is a small hole drilled into the butterfly(M119) and if carbon builds up on this hole the car will die at times!
