Customer Question

Paul. I'm told I need an air flow sensor for my 1988 300SE, but it is difficult to get the part. I have a colleague going to Europe soon. He may be able to get me the part. Are you able to advise the part number? Ivan Cahill
JA: No. I'm the Mercedes Mechanic's Assistant. Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?
Customer: I've on
JA: Are you fixing your 300SE yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've only been told by Capital Star Motors in Canberra that i need an air flow sensor. When I stop my idling speed is 750 RPM but can drop down to 500 RPM. When it drops I cannot get it back up to operating speed and have to turn off the engine and restart. If I can get the part Capital Star Motors will fit.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
