1994 e320 surges at idle but ok when driving?


Asked by May 26, 2016 at 02:48 PM about the 1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At idle it started surging up and down but in gear
under load no problem?
Would rather not take it to a dealer to analyze. I was
told probably either air flow meter or dirty throttle

Clean them and see if the surging goes away. Any lights lit up on the dash?


No lights on dash. Thanks


Have it scanned for DTC codes the computer knows! NO lights necessary it has codes. 22 years old a good through tune is needed.
