1,For the hunting problem, check that all the vacuum hoses are attached correctly and there are no leaking joints, check the air filter is in good condition and the air box is closed properly, check the pipe from the air box to the throttle body for splits, the ignition coil lead for loose/split cable and have the sensor in the air pipe (just after the air box, has a wire plugged into it) checked as they pack up, giving the ECU a head ache. 2, The vibration at speed could be caused by a number of things. First, because the vibration appears at speed i'd have all 4 wheels balanced as you may have lost a wheel weight, Second, while the cars jacked up check the wheel bearings (with the wheel on and tightened up hold the top and bottom of the wheel and give it a wiggle, if you feel any movement you need to change the bearing which is easy on most mercs). If these are fine then the next place to look would be the rubber couplings on the prop shaft as these also tend to fail. Oh, and get the tracking checked. Hope I've been helpful and you get to the bottom of your problems.. Good luck!

I agree with Mick. Check the tires and balancing first. The vast majority of vibration problems are found here. Out of balance, a flat spot, etc are common problems. Also - check tires pressures. This can make a big difference.

Wow you went straight to the big guns huh. Start simply by eliminating Problems with fuel delivery. If all that checks out, move onto the ignition system, ignition coil, plugs leads etc.
