Hi there,
i am new to merc world and having a prob with a 124 with black engine in it.its 2.0 model.

last time the car died while driving few times until it refuses to start.send it for repair and all done was tuning.the car is fine for a week when it stall again at traffic light when i shifted to D.
seems like the engine is slow to react to load.

send it to another shop and he cleaned the ICV plus turn the allen key on beside the air intake mouth.things improved a lot but for 3 days only.now its back.not the stalling but idle is too low as its slow to react to load like when switching the aircond on or shiting to D.

i cleaned the ICV myself but it seems to be the same.
what is the problem?

where is the idle adjusted,is it on the allen key beside the air intake mouth or on the ICV itself?

tq for your reply.
