Need urgent help !!!


Yesterday at the garage my low-idle(mb-300 ce) has been fixed, i thought. The idle has been set on (P) 1100rpm, and when the cars is on the good temperture the idle is on 500rpm in (D).

Here comes the problem, everytime i turn my steering-weel the idle drops aprox. 50rpm this stalls the car, even when you ajust the idle a bit higher it still keeps dropping and fluctuate.

Yesterday-evening i went for a drive and again my idle was real low, i stood still at the stoplight and when i wanted to drive and whent in a u turn my car stopt and every blocked (my steering-weel and the brakes) for 5 minutes i could not start my car (at that moment is feels like a hour).

I hope that someone can tell me where to look for fixing this problem.

Manny Thanks,

What year (?), what was the idle problem it was in the shop for (?), and most likely you now have a vacuum leak or a connector was not reconnected - so you are running limp mode.

Hi Steve,

The year is 1987, the reason why it was in the shop becease it was running low on idle and the steering-weel problem.

The only thing what they did was ajust the idle higher.

Can you tell me where to look for, and wich connectors to check.

Yeah I agree... Look over and check every Vacumm hose, and mark it with white out to be sure that you get both ends and don't skip any
