I've got a low mileage(96K) 1985 300D that will sometimes shake after stopping and idling. This problem is intermittent and sometimes stops after a couple of seconds, sometimes not until I accelerate again. My mechanic did some adjustment to the fuel delivery after performing a major service but the problem is still there. Any ideas? I guess it's possible further adjustment is possible, but what should I have checked?

p.s. How do I change the instrument cluster lights, they seem very dim....thx!
