Mercedes 180E engine stalling issue

Post by joh » Sun 06 Nov, 2016 2:58 pm

Hi everyone,

I've been having issues with my Mercedes 180E for a few years where the engine would stall when slowing down or stationary. I've spoken to Mercedes about the issue without any positive solution.

I've created a blog post on my own findings. The blog post describes how I may have fixed the issue as the car has been running well for the last few months now.

Great write-up John.

It is very annoying when the "specialists" say there is nothing wrong with your car....

Glad you could fix it and did not have to spend 4k.
