Just for the record, I did a search on this, but couldn't come up with anything because it kept bring up INSTALL, and was way too broad.
On to my question... Stopped at a stop light, I felt the car rumble, and it rolled back (I pushed brake then), and the car had stalled. I couldn't figure it out? Then of course, the 1 out of 10 times that I try to start my car when warm, it wouldn't start (still need a new Overvolt Relay). So I was stuck at a stop light with my friend for a number of minutes while attempting to start the car. I really hope I didn't give MB a bad name by seeing one broken down at a stop light!!
Anyway, I had a rough idle awhile back, but got a new fuel filter and new spark plugs and the problem was cured. Right before the engine died, it stumbled like it did with the rough idle (always feels like a car has been nudged me from behind). Anyone have any idea what this could be?
