Hi,

I have a 2002 SLK 320 with 68000 miles on the clock. It is awesome in all repects except for a slight niggle.

It will perform normally all day until you approach a junction and try to accelerate away. There is a very slight but noticeable hesitation on the acceleration. If you have to stop at the junction the rev counter sometimes looks like the engine is going to stall but never does, it almost stutters, but once you've pulled away the car drives normally again.

This fault is intermittent, the car will go days and you think the problem has gone only for it to return when you least expect it to.

Any ideas would be hugely appreciated, it is a small fault on what is a perfect little roadster.

Regards

Andy
