Can anyone advise me on how to check the ohms on tne spark plug wires? Trying to eliminate a rough idle. Thanks in advance. When I asked a few so called mechanics(not MB Techs either)all they would tell me was "bring it to there shop". NOT!!

AS MB wires are solid core they should have a 1-2 ohm reading. the end that connects to the spark plug is the resistor, it should have 1,2 or 5K markings.
