    Hello all, I've got a 2005 c220 cdi manual,
    The problem is every now and again while going through the gears between 1500 and 2500 revs you get a jerk/splutter, it clears itself easily, I've got no other symptoms or lights on ect?? Anyone had this??

    The last C220CDI I had doing this exact fault turned out to be the torque converter surging.

    Is that a big job? It does it very low revs press the peddle a little and it disappears, but does it in most gears more so when warm I think

    Then it doesnt apply and you have another fault. I have only just seen that in your thread. My apologies!

    No problem! Do you think this could be a maf sensor? It only seems to splutter between 2000 and 2500 revs no warning lights, car runs fine otherwise

    STAR test and look at live data is the way forward. You can test the MAF with the STAR machine

    Such an annoying fault, It splutters only with very light revs just before 2500 then its gone! But if you keep your foot so it stays before 2500 it splutters alot! No lights though would plug in still show anything? What's it sound like to you?

    plugging into STAR can show a host of faults (if the operator knows how to use it properly!) that other machines cannot access

    No.

    Did you get the car fixed?

    Would an injector, fuel starvation or MAF not cause this?

    Not been fixed yet, that's how small of a problem it is, I'm thinking possible air mass metre or maybe worn injector, but Its running on so I'm not got g mess with it just yet

    check your boost pipe from intercooler up to intake pipe on manifold.
    It might be split.

    As you open bonnet, its in front of you just to the right, black rubber pipe.
