Hi
My mate took our S280 to the car wash today and for some reason had the engine bay washed.The car ran okay for about 1 mile before she parked it.When she started the car minutes later,it sounded like it was missfiring and theres not enough power in it.When its idling its shaking/vibrating.Anyone knows what could be the likely problem coz it was running perfect before it was washed.:(
