Asked by Feb 08, 2016 at 12:50 PM about the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 4 Dr C230 Kompressor Supercharged Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 c230 Kompressor sport
and when I am idling its like
sputtering it's fine when I'm driving
just when I thought. I also have
noticed that if lost power it doesn't
take off is good nor is it as fast. What
could this be?

check the belt tensioner on the "Kompressor" after some time the spring can get weak and slip and bounce~...check that belt~!...and the tensioner arm strength~


That would make it idle funny???

A tune up and filter change may be in order.


yes a stick and slip arrangement of the belt would make it Idle funny...yes indeed~


check the tensioner..the spring can get weak...and land you where you are today~
