Misfire about 2K RPM

Asked by May 19, 2017 at 10:53 AM about the 1996 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

May 19, 2017

We are working on a 1996 S320 right now.  It will run fine up to about 2K RPM and then begin to cut out and miss upon acceleration past that point.
It appears that the #4, and #6 cylinders are cutting out at that point.  I only suspect this as no real way to verify but that’s what it seems like.
Then, if you pull over and turn the car off it somehow “resets” itself and you can drive again on all six cylinders.  If you can shed any light on this problem then we would be most appreciative.
Thanks very much,
