I have a 2002 model SL 500 with 70k miles on it.

I have changed the fuel filter, spark plugs, have serviced recently and still when i start the car at times it is jerky and takes a little while to get going.

And at other times it starts first go.

Suggesstions?

Hello and welcome, this is a very hard question has the car been on STAR to check for any fault codes. we get next to no problems at all with that engine

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

I have exactly this problem myself in the mornings.

As for the car, if it was fine before the service, it is probably something that was done at the service. Begin by checking the things you changed, in order to ensure that you have good contacts.

As Malcolm, may then warrant STAR to pinpoint the problem?

In the service it was just the oil change to Mobil 1.

No malfunctions are showing on the dashboard either. I would say 70% it starts fine first go. 30% delayed.

Also when engine is hot then always starts first go.

Then a cold starting device, nothing to do with the MAF but a possible air temp sensor
