Hello everyone,
Philip Kondilas from Oceanside (north of SD) Ca. 2001 SLK with 34K miles. Manual transmission.
I just posted about pulling a P0120 code and checking the MAF and then replacing the Accelerator Pedal assembly. I drove up to San Fran with no problems. I did notice a slight hesitation in the acceleration after 500 miles of driving above 4 K RPM.
The next morning I had the same acceleration problems that occured before I replaced the accelerator pedal assembly. (RPMs would not go over 2K) I could not get the car over 40 mph. I calibrated the accelerator pedal assembly (turn the key to position 2 and hold the pedal fully depressed for 15 seconds the to the off positio for 2 minute) and the problem went away. Later that day I saw the CE light. I do not know when it turned on (light blocked by blinker control stem). I assumed that since I had not cleared the P0120 code that when I got home and erased the codes nthe light would go out. I checked the codes and had P0300, P0304, P0305, P0306. Tried to erase and the codes stayed.
Am I having a run of bad luck or is the accelerator perdal assembly somehow tied to the cylinder misfires. Thanks,
Philip

Sorry that I can't be of help.

However, welcome!! Sounds like a great SLK with so few miles.

I'm hopeful you'll get it sorted soon and be able to enjoy that beautiful car.
