My W203 C240 Auto engine management light came on today on the way to work. The car was feeling sluggish this morning when started and when I stop at the traffic lights the car starts to chug a bit. I only serviced it this week and replaced all filters, oil, plugs etc. Would it be somthing I missed? I checked the computer on the car and there is no malfunctions.

the plug leads are vulnerable and may be unhappy now they have been disturbed.

ah yes, a correct use of the blunt tool that is unplugging the air mass.

my money still on the leads 'cos the plugs were changed. that 'chugging' is cylinder shut down we presume?
