    Hi there,

    Got a 1996 C230 Kompressor that is running really badly. I'll do my best to explain;

    - Car starts and idles fine
    - When driving if you use 10-20% throttle or less its fine
    - 20-60% throttle and the car will VERY slowly and jerk-ily accelerate
    - 60% or more throttle and the revs drop off until you release the throttle
    - 100% throttle and it starts misfiring and looses revs etc

    Has anyone else come across issues like this? Anything particular I can check myself without diagnostics?

    Any is there anywhere reasonably prices that will do Star diagnostics in/around Reading area? Mercedes want £150 but I am very reluctant to pay that much!!

    Any help would be warmly welcomed.

    Kind Regards

    Alec
