I have a 1984 MB 190E. Starts well, runs OK, until I select rev or drive, then it misses badly. Can clear it by selecting neutral and giving it some gas. Cannot find any vacuum leaks. HELP.

Sounds like it could be carbon blockage you could have a dirty throttle body. Clean it with Brake Cleaner and Rag. It also could be a weak fuel pump or clogged fuel filter. I would do a fuel pressure test and check it. I would replace the fuel filter first since it would be cheaper. Then, I would suspect the ignition. I would do a tune up or check the plugs and wires. If they are old I would replace them. Also, it could be a weak battery as well. I would put a load test on it. Even though it could start the engine it doesn't mean that it is weak. Make sure it is charging as well by putting a multimeter on it.
