I've had a '98 CLK320 for about a year. Some questions:

1. The fuel gauge sometimes acts quirky. It will read empty even though the tank is completely full. This happens every once in awhile. The dealer has changed it twice but the same problem occurs.

2. When coasting at about 15-25 mph in second gear the car seems to lurch forward abruptly when the gas is applied. This occurs only around these speeds and it seems to happen only in 2nd gear. Pedal pressure is constant (not floored). Is this normal?

I have not seen the lurching problem yet but the fuel gauge is all to familiar. Some have a problem at the tank, but I have seen where some have seeped some sort of resin out of the peg where the needle sits. And after sitting for a while, the needle sticks to the peg.

Thanks for the info... I talked to the dealer again and they told me that it seems to be a flaw and a fix should arrive soon.

another question: Under the hood I noticed the sticker on the CAN bus which basically says the car is a TLEV car and has Calif emissions (obviously, since it was purchased in CA).
What it the difference between the same car with CA emissions and without?

Are there any horsepower losses in the CLK with CA emissions?

All Mercedes V6 engines have the same level of emission controls. No longer special California version.
