Yup. Vacuum leak somewhere. If it's a manual you can just stall it until you find the actual problem.

I've probably dumped $16,000 into my 300D over the last 12 years of ownership. I realize I could sell it for $2000, maybe 3 if I wait for the right buyer.

Most people don't.



I've been closer than I'd like to a number of IEDs going off. I don't want a small one aimed at my face. One reason I'm still driving an '83 W123.
