I have a 86 190E 16v that I just took to the shop because it was running rough. It would load up and stutter and backfire at around 4500 rpm and when it idles it will stall. It is also realy hard to start. The shop put new plugs in and adjusted the air/fuel mixture. It ran perfect for about 200 miles and now itís doing the same thing again? Any advice? Thanks

has anyone performed a compression test?

or adjusted the valves in the last ten years ?

fuel filter replaced when ?

and get a fuel sample when the filter is removed -
look for fine dirt sediment, rust, or water when
reverse blowing-out the filter into a clear bottle

how many miles on the car ?

how many owners ?
