i have an SL320 which has problems with the engine, it goes in to safe mode at high revs, the diagnosis machines says that it is three injectors, would anyone know what would be the best way forward

I cannot see why 3 injector should fail at once, is it the V6

If it was missing on 3 then the car would be hard to drive,if at all. Does the engine really shake when the fault happens

initially it is fine, and if you was to drive with a very calm foot it would be ok, however as soon as you try and accelerate a bit more, the engine will go quite shaky and you would be unable to accelerate. once the engine is switched off and restarted it will be ok again.
