I've run some injector cleaner which seems to help at first, but the improvement is marginal at best, and doesn't last long. Could be coincidence.
Could be, but every MB Tech I talked to said the injectors are hard to kill on these cars. I replaced mine and found it did nothing, then again my head gasket was shot before and my Pre-Cats were clogged as well. But now at least I know they are new. I have replaced that Water Temp Sensor 3 times on mine, but two of those were because I broke it. Damn wrench slips. But when I did replace it my car started better warm and cold and seemed to do better all around.
