w124 '89 260E - Rough idle and stalls sometimes
Hi,

I got a w124 260e with a annoying problem. It runs rough when idle and sometimes stalls when waiting for traffic lights. It start pretty ok, the first cold start always stalls.
In the past half year the sparkplugs, distributer and ignition cables has been replaced. It runs smoothly when driving only when driving slow up the hills it runs also bit rough. lack of power.
I was thinking about fuel pump, filter or so. or faulty OVP.

Anyone has advice what it can be? also anybody knows a reliable and not so expensive mechanic near bangsar for old benz? I used to bring to to Lim Tayer but when my speedometer was not working they checked and said i needed to replace the unit. In the end the cable was just broke so lost my trust a bit in them..

Thank you

HI Sir,

I own the 124 model as well but I am not an expert. I am still learning.

The problem with the car does not sound very serious. Please take a drive to City Cycle in Puchong and I am very sure they will solve it for you at a reasonable $. Tel 037785 0727. The full address is in our directory listing.

Best Wishes.

I have an e220. I had the stalling problem too but now seems to be solved after using 3M fuel system cleaner and also using Caltex petrol on a regular basis. Caltex has the fuel additive for cleaning fuel systems.

The engine still idles a bit unevenly when cold but doesn’t stall any more. Before the cleaner treatment my engine stalled about 4 times in 6 months.

Yes I heard that Caltex petrol had the cleaning additive from my ex mechanic. Try RON97 as I used that on my W211 and I enjoy the ride compared against RON95, Good Luck

After changing to Castrol semi-synthetic from mineral, my engine seems smoother and accelerates faster.

Hasn't solved the uneven idling when cold though.Quote:

YouTube is your friend. You can figure out whether you have problems with your fuel pump/s or filter or accumulator. I have similar car and I'll try to find out more about this issues. Try M103 or W124 fuel pump test on YouTube.

It could also be due to the Idler Air Valve issues or CO % Mixture Problem or Ingressive Air System like Leaking Of Intake Air System

You can check the list of Mechanic in the Directory that is closest to you to help you out with your idling...
