My wife's slk230 just got back from the shop for a valve job ( burned valve), and a new timing chain @ 129k. She has had the car back less than 3 weeks and when she started it today I noticed it sputtered a bit at first. So, I removed the plug/ coil pack cover to have a look and I didn't even need to remove the plugs---they were submersed in oil in the well. What in the world did the mechanic do wrong or forget to do. I Am going to take it to him Monday and I would like to know what to say. Anyone have any ideas? Could it be a valve cover gasket or some O rings that go under the rocker arms or what??? Thanks to one and all. This is my first time on the forum.

Welcome from New Hampshire, if you remove the valve cover and flip it over there are rubber seals that can go bad over time, or else they got damaged some how.

Thank you live free.... I am not going into it myself unless the mechanic turns out to be an even bigger you know what. So, we wait a couple more days with gorgeous Fall weather, unable to drive it due to this you know what mech. Thanks for the tip... I may need to do it myself. Do you have any suggestions? Can I buy O rings or what it needs at a local parts store or will I have to go to an MB stealer? Have you had to do this yourself? Is there a video tutorial available?
