Angry 1997 C230 - Check Engine Light

When making turns with the gas pedal down, the check engine light goes on and the car loses significant power (almost like it is running on half the cylinders) - After some down time it will go off and then it will happen again (about 5 times a week)

It sounds like a moped and 3 dealers have not been able to correct, they have only deactivated the light and it happens again.

What was the CODE that was found????
If it was P0 170 then you need an air mass sensor.
