Acceleration surge requires 2 foot driving

Asked by Jul 26, 2012 at 04:37 AM about the 1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 280

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, in a 1996 C280, there is occasional acceleration surge while driving that requires I have my foot over the brake pedal at all times.  It's been to the shop a few times, always with different analysis, but none of the fixes have addressed the isses, can anyone suggest things to look into? Thanks

A better mechanic? Like you found out can be any number of things that is causing the issue. Could be something simple to a couple of faulty sensors. I'd just be guess at this point.
