my wifes car yesterday has developed a bit of hunting and some times stalling at idle and will not rev past 4000 whilst stationary I know that my jaguar has a restriction on the engine but has the older mercedes ?,and could this stalling be due to the fuel filter?

The hunting could be an air leak causing poor idle, they will not rev past 4k in N
