Mass Air Meter
I have a 1999 slk230 and had a diagnostic test ran on it because the check engine light was on. They (German Import Specialist of North Kansas City) told me that I needed an "Air Mass Meter" and a "Stop Light Switch". I was told that the transmission will go into limp mode eventually if these are not replaced. I am new to the Mercedes world and would really appreciate some input. The car is running great and everything works fine but the check engine light did come back on after 2, 20 mile trips as the mechanic said it would.
I got a price of $460 for the Air Mass Meter (384 parts, 94 labor) and $101 for the Stop Light Switch (20 parts, 81 labor).
Is anyone familiar with these items?
