Asked by Apr 15, 2016 at 04:44 PM about the 1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 230 Supercharged Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, my c230k starts up fine with no shaking but when i put it
in drive the shaking is really out control my wiper start to
shake and my seats once the car gets warm the shaking
goes down a little or when i put in gas. Sometimes my car
will be almost silent on a good day once its already
warmed up. Ive changed the sparks and the MAF Sensor
and even pulled of the throttle body and cleaned it i dont
know for sure if the throttle body works perfectly but yeah
and I checked for air leaks too

Did you receive a check engine light at all?

I'm having the same issue. Car drives fine except when cold and I put it in drive.

As soon as I give a gas and start moving shaking goes away.

Did you find the problem? My c230 does the same ting

Put in new motor and trans mounts.
