Asked by Aug 09, 2019 at 12:08 AM about the 2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was sitting idle waiting for someone when the
rpms started fluctuating, After a while it died. I
tried starting it but it would have the same problem
of fluctuating rpms and it would die again. If I tried
putting it in drive or reverse, it would die. Any idea
