I had the same problem a few months ago on my 93 300E2.8. Your problems sound familiar--surging and then back to a very low idle. Sometimes did it, sometimes not. At any time except idle, I really could not see any difference in the car's performance (even when accelerating) so I guess the "limp" mode is pretty good. And I could not see any difference with it disconneted. I could see nothing physically wrong with the sensor; it just did not work. Very simple fix (less than five minutes) but not cheap even when you do it yourself. I remember about $240 from Fast Lane. Still, it is a bit hard to spend that much for one part without knowing it is truly the problem. Can you find another 93-95 300E to swap sensors for a few minutes?
