Even though you replaced the engine wiring harness, the same needs to be done to the throttle actuator. They suffer the same problem. This should be done before any further diagnosis.

I ran into the same exact problem with PeachParts when I replaced my engine wiring harness. They made good on the part, though the one you need is more expensive.

Fixed! I installed new Lemfoerder motor mounts and now the engine idles smooth as silk.

The job took me 1.5 hours. The car sees no salt so I didn't have to fight the fasteners.

I have Pagid brakes on my E320 for 30K. They've always squealed the whole time, and still do. Refreshing the paste on the back of the pads did nothing.

The car has coil packs. I had one go bad some time ago, so I know what that feels like. This is more subtle and only at idle. Otherwise, it runs smooth as silk. Like I said, it is not a miss. ...

Vibration at idle, 1995 E320

My E320 developed a noticable vibration at idle (500 rpm). It is not as though the engine developed a miss, it's more like an out of balance vibration. It goes away at higher rpms.

CD cassette 95 E320
